Torth y Tir
Torth y Tir is Welsh for ‘Loaf of the land’ and we are a Community Supported Peasant Bakery.
Ours is a journey, from growing heritage grains to processing and milling on site before ending with naturally leavened bread baked entirely by hand in a wood-fired oven.
Added to that, our mobile oven makes wonderful organic, sourdough, wood-fired pizzas at regional events and we run educational ‘field to loaf’ baking classes teaching time honoured ways of baking, growing and land stewardship.
Inspired by the well-established ‘Boulanger Paysanne’ model in France,
we aim to become the first ‘Peasant Bakery’ in the UK here in St Davids, Pembrokeshire, West Wales.
Join with us on a journey to make entirely hand made, wood-fired, sourdough bread stone milled from wheat we have grown, that is suited to our land and our climate, is higher in nutrients, has distinctive flavours and is made in a way which nourishes our bodies and our communities.
We work on a ‘Community-Supported Bakery’ model, which means we are owned and run by our members, the local community and they share the risks and rewards of production in a spirit of mutual trust and openness.
Let’s make bread & wheat healthy again & restore them to their rightful place at the heart of our tables & our communities.
