100% Natural Sourdough developed over 36 hours
Flour, water, salt, sound simple? It really is, but combining these simple ingredients in the right way can create something quite special and unique every time.
Flour and water combine to create the fabled starter or mother (ours is named Ellery) which utilises the natural Inverloch yeasts to create the foundation of all our Sourdough products.
These few simple ingredients plus a little help from us produces crisp crusts, open crumb, delicious flavours and the key ingredient of time for the dough to ferment produces something which is easily digestible and great for gut health.

Our Sourdough Loaves
Located in beautiful Inverloch on the stunning Bass Coast in Gippsland we are a small batch authentic artisan Sourdough bakery bringing bread to the locals and visitors in coastal Victoria. Baking is a passion that has now become a part of our everyday life and we couldn't be happier.
We took the big plunge in June 2020 opening up our micro-bakery with small volumes delivering to locals in Inverloch. In 3 months we grew from baking in one Rofco B40 oven baking twice a week to running two Rofco B40 ovens and baking five days a week. We have been continuing to invest in more commercial baking equipment enabling us to scale up our volumes and will soon move from our small starter baking kitchen to a purpose built space. Stay tuned for more about this in the coming months.
Each of our Sourdough loaves take a minimum 30 hours to produce and we believe is the mark of truly authentic sourdough. All of our bakes are made by hand in small batches and slow fermented. There is no commercial or baking yeast added and absolutely no other nasty chemicals often found in mass-produced bread to superficially extend the shelf life. We only deliver bread that has been baked that same day, and always will, so you know the bread you receive is fresh.
