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
