A delicious, dark European style loaf with a soft, porous, crust. This bread is made with a combination of Rye and Wheat flours, so it is not as dark as pure rye would be, but chewier and more tangy than a standard wholemeal loaf would be.
Perfect for dunking in soup and mopping up stews!
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.
Rye flour, organic stone ground spelt wholemeal, water, sea salt, natural leaven, sunflower seeds.
This bread is just delicious!! It’s a genuine rye which is tasty, filling and I’m sorry to repeat it- but just delicious. My whole family loves it. I even gave my dad ( in his late 80’s) a loaf as a Christmas present this year and he said it was the best gift he has been given in over 50 years!! ( even from me)
