We are a long-standing family bakery in the Derbyshire Peak District, a national park.
We started over 70 years ago. In that time, the world has changed dramatically; but, in the bakery, the way we bake biscuits is barely any different.
In the last 50 years, we have only had two Head Bakers. In 2009, Terry retired, and Paul, his understudy, took Terry’s place. Paul now sifts, weighs, mixes, and works the dough in the same old-fashioned way.
We use the same bronze rollers and biscuit-moulding method that we have for decades.
Here in Ashbourne, England, we have a saying: 'Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose, ducks'.
