Using only natural ingredients

Our Bread - Bara Melin Talgarth

We are a small artisan bakery and members of The Real Bread Campaign. This means our bread is made without additives and using long, slow fermentation methods. We use flour produced on site where possible, and source white and granary flours from Shipton Mill who also stone grind. We do not currently make gluten free bread. All of our breads contain GLUTEN

In 2019 we featured in Europe’s Best Bakeries by Sarah Guy, and were County Winner for Powys at the National Bakery Awards.
