Our sourdoughs, focaccia and fruit loaves are made with only the very best ingredients by the Seven Seeded Artisan Bakery. At the heart of all their breads are four simple ingredients – flour, water, salt and olive oil – absolutely no artificial additives or unnatural improvers. Each loaf is made over two days, hand shaped and then baked direct on the oven floor to capture the true flavour with a crust to match.
