Real Bread Organic Flours Traditional methods Sourdough
We are back October 16th
with fresh enthusiasm & new ideas
Over the Summer we have upgraded our equipment, improved our techniques and practiced, practiced, practiced so that we are offering better quality artisan loaves. Crust, keeping quality, appearance and flavour are all being worked on and the re-introduction of SOURDOUGH too.
We have also made some significant changes in how we run 'the shop'.
Thank you for visiting the website of WillowTree Bread.
We own a small hobby farm in the heart of North Saanich on beautiful Vancouver Island. Charles is a hobby baker and in our micro-bakery he makes artisan bread which we sell all through the year to enthusiastic lovers of Real Bread !
Our artisan loaves are made using traditional long fermentation methods and organic flours. We are continually looking for ways to improve the quality of our bread and creating interesting flavours to enhance our repertoire.
We often use our own pesticide-free farm produce to make loaves such as - Apricot, Walnut & Lavender Loaf; Black Olive, Garlic and Rosemary Focaccia; or Tuscan Herb Loaf.
Also, right here on the premises, we stone-grind Canadian grown organic Red Fife wheat which makes extremely tasty and nourishing loaves.
In the summer we supply North Saanich Farmers Market with Pain au Chocolat and Croissant which Charles makes from scratch. This type of pastry is a special passion for Charles and the results are mouth watering!
We sell our bread by a pre-order email system which means that there is no waste and folk get exactly the bread they like from the week's menu!!
