Peter’s Yard use only naturally fermenting sourdough, Shipton Mill organic flour and the very best, natural ingredients in all their baking. Their wavy, golden crispbreads are the choice of chefs at Michelin starred restaurants and have won plenty plenty of awards, including Great Taste Awards from the Guild of Fine Foods.
Peter's Yard is a tale of two English friends, Ian and Wendy, who had left their corporate jobs to pursue their ambition of introducing a Swedish-inspired bakery to the UK. On a research trip to Sweden, they heard rumours of a Peter Ljungqvist from another baker- a man quietly pursuing his passion for traditional baking methods and recipes- and knew they had to meet him. At his bakery, they were captivated by the trays of warm crusty loaves, bags of stoneground flour and jars of bubbling sourdough starter. They also discovered the most delicious crispbread (knäckebröd) they had ever eaten. Wendy and Ian told Peter they thought his crispbread was simply too good to remain confined to one small bakery, and Peter’s Yard crispbread was born- inspired by Peter, his lovely home and his yard with a wooden gate on the edge of the beautiful Swedish countryside.
