Welcome to BreadBeard, the very “Micro Bakery” that I run from my home in Torbay, South Devon.

I love to bake sourdough bread. Sourdough only contains 3 ingredients. Flour, water and salt. It really doesn’t get much more simple than that! Proper food made with love and care.

I currently bake white and light malt sourdough loaves three times a week. Loaves are baked for collection on Mondays and Wednesdays, with delivery available by bicycle (subject to location) on Fridays. I bake exclusively to order to avoid waste, with a typical waiting list of about a week. In addition to my regular loaves. I also make a very indulgent chocolate sourdough loaf, and also occasionally make special bakes, such as hot cross buns, cinnamon bread and focaccia (subject to availability).

I am not a supermarket or giant bread factory. All of my bread is made by hand, and as such, not all loaves look the same. Sourdough is a natural live culture that I encourage to grow by feeding and then make into dough. All of my loaves turn out slightly differently. This is part of the magic of hand-made sourdough. Each loaf is a unique character.

If you live in Torbay and you are interested in buying sourdough bread from me, email me at simon@breadbeard.co.uk and let me know what you would like.

Please note that bread will not be available between Friday 29th April and Wednesday 25th May 2022.

Thank you for dropping by…

Simon Darby
