Pan au Chocolat

Our Humble Beginnings.

As a community supported bakery we feel lucky to have had the financial support from local individuals who invested in the enterprise from the very beginning and now our regular customers and friends. With this investment and funding secured from the Local Action Group we have been able to grow, develop our products and reach milestones that seemed impossible. We thank all of our customers who continue to buy our bread and motivate us to improve our knowledge and continue to love our skilled craft as artisan bakers.

Our Friends and Projects we recommend……

Model Farm. Ross-on-Wye.

Grass fed cows and deep flovoured meat. They collect our bread on a Thursday….. so if it is easier to get to Ross than to Longhope you can always collect from the their shop.

Kempley Produce Market

This market is held every second Saturday of the month, 9.30 to 11.30 at Kempley Village Hall, offering a wide range of locally produced goods. We attend every market and often sell out…… its so busy.

Hart’s Bakery

You can find this little gem of a bakery at Temple Meads Station, Bristol, under one of the arches. Laura was welcoming our team some time ago when we set out to learn everything there is to know about croissants and laminated dough.

Shipton Mill

This is our supplier of organic flour. We are lucky to have them fairly close to us.
