SOURDOUGH 101

Bread was first leavened approximately 6000 years ago, but it wasn’t until the 1950’s that the commercialisation of bread began. Today, it’s thought that the advent of quickly made, high volume bread may have contributed to adverse health and dietary conditions in western societies.

Sourdough bread is different. It’s made using a natural leaven (fermented flour and water) which contains wild yeast and good bacteria. Sourdough offers many benefits like easier digestion, more nutrients and a lower GI – throw in that beautiful taste and it’s no wonder it has stood the test of time.

Shepherd’s sourdough is made slowly using traditional handcraft methods. It’s also yeast free, dairy free, sugar free, egg free and contains no preservative or additives

Where Does Your Bread Begin?

One week before Christmas 2017, the Shepherd’s team, including founder and Head Baker Michael Shepherd, headed west to take part in the annual wheat harvest in and around Dubbo, and to spend time with the Aussie farmers and millers of the crop which defines our business…. We are prepared for the heat, so it’s not…
