About Mayfield Farm Bakery

We specialise in handmade breads - Sourdoughs, traditional white loaves, seeded and specialities.   The Team, led by Head Baker & Owner, Elfyn Hanks, believe in good wholesome food, traditionally made without the use of unnecessary preservatives and colourings.  We are keen to use the very best ingredients from local sources, keeping food miles to a minimum and supporting other local, artisan businesses.

The Bakery is an open kitchen, allowing our customers to see where we create our products and also allows them to meet our bakers, who are always happy to offer advice about bread making or serving suggestions. In the Deli Shop, guests will find our range of patisserie, as well as cheeses, olives, cured meats and wines.  The Cafe offers a comfortable space to catch up with friends, whilst enjoying brunch, tea and cake, or a luxurious Afternoon Tea.

 

Our Charitable Beliefs

Our chosen charity for 2020-2021 is St Clare Hospice, a local charity which supports our community and is a cause close to our hearts at the Bakery. The proceeds from our carrier bag charge will be donated to St Clare Hospice, along with any donations our kind customers give in the collection box.

We are happy to donate a small raffle prize to those who are also fundrasing for St Clare Hospice, we just kindly ask that you bring into the office a letter detailing the event, the event date and the charity commission number.

We see it as part of our social responsibilty to do what we can to support iur local community. We currently donate our surplus bread to the Food Bank, which is designed to provide emergency food to individuals and families in crisis, and aims to help people break through their cycle of poverty.

Any bread not suitable for Food Bank donation, we give to local animal charities and farmers for feed, rather than see it go to landfill. 

If you are a local animal sanctuary and could make use of any food waste, then please get in touch with us.
