The Doorstep Bakery is a fledging community project in the heart of the Howe of Fife, an offshoot of the North Howe Transition Toun. have set up a small bakery in the kitchen of Collessie Village Hall. We are a group of local people who are passionate about good quality bread and are setting up a local commercially based community bakery in the coming months.
Over the last three decades, we have seen the demise of many village
businesses in this area. This is our chance to turn that situation around and with your support we will be able to run a local bakery to cater for you.
We aim to provide freshly made bread, delivered to your door every week on
a subscription basis. As a small artisan producer our prices will be competitive with similar quality producers, we will use organic ingredients and source them as locally as possible.
The business will be structured as a Community Co-operative
business designed to provide local employment for local people and most importantly fantastic breads for the local community.
Our plan is to bring back tasty wholesome bread as part of our local diet. We will launch with an initial small range of products that will increase with time. Like other new baking initiatives we want to start by offering breads on a subscription basis, this means that we bake to order, it helps us plan how much bread we have to make and decreases waste. The benefit to the customer is you know how much your bread will cost several months in advance and you know you will get a weekly delivery much like popular ‘veg box’ schemes.
