Wakelyns Bakery at Wakelyns Organic Agroforestry produces very small batches of wholegrain bread, just enough for us to offer a few of their sustaining loaves, which have a complex nutty flavour and keep beautifully, through our website.
Henrietta Inman, who founded this unique field to loaf bakery, describes their work and the bread they bake with organic flour milled from grain grown on the farm:
We bake, cook and create at Wakelyns Organic Agroforestry farm. Agroforestry, integrating alleys of trees between alleys of crops, is an incredibly diverse and therefore resilient and productive way of farming and food production. It is also very delicious and beautiful. We make use of the whole agroforestry system in our bakery kitchen, demonstrating the abundance of ingredients we have all around us.
Our wholegrain sourdough bread is made with the revolutionary YQ population wheat grown in the crop alleys and at Turners of Bytham in Lincolnshire, where Edgar wheat is also grown for the bread. At Wakelyns we save and sow the wheat seeds, harvest, mill and bake them here on the farm. We use timber from the tree alleys and solar panels outside the bakery to power our two wood-fired and electric ovens. Wholegrain flours contain all the goodness of flavour and nutrition from the whole grain of wheat. None of the grain goes to waste in the milling process. Sourdough, naturally leavened bread, is good for our guts and overall health. The fermentation process increases the nutrients available and creates very flavourful loaves, which we really hope you enjoy!
We love our YQ tin loaf toasted in the morning with local Fen Farm Dairy butter and jam made with fruits from the tree alleys; it’s great for sandwiches too and everything really. It keeps very well wrapped in the white paper it arrives in for at least 7 days. If it’s drying out, refresh it by dipping it in water and putting it back in the oven.
