A fruit-filled loaf with the chewy, full-bodied characteristics of sourdough bread but the sweetness of fruit bread. Like a Hot Cross Bun in a loaf!
Please note all loaves of bread come sliced, and sealed in a plastic bag.
*Please note: our bread is baked the day prior to delivery to allow time to pack and ship. In addition, our delivery vehicles are refrigerated, to ensure pies and sausage rolls stay at the right temperature for food safety. So, when your Shepherd's bread arrives at your house, it might feel 'firm' to the touch, which can make it seem stale. Rest assured, if you leave it on the bench to return to room temp, it will feel a lot fresher in no time! If, however you like to freeze your bread, go ahead and pop it straight into the freezer to maintain max freshness as soon as it arrives.

I tried the fig and raisin last time and decided to eventually try all flavours. Again, I like that this is not overly sweet, but at the same time has plengty of flavour. I have frozen some slices so I can have a slice or two when the fancy takes me.
The flavour and texture is strong enough to support goats cheese and is delicious with nothing on it as well.
Great tasting and much healthier option
Great toasted for brekky
