The Pugmill Bakehouse is now closed but Are you ready to gather around the Hearth someday?
The Pugmill Bakehouse WAS DESIGNED AS a wood fired community kitchen specialising in workshops and community gatherings. A socially minded business, my erstwhile MISSION WAS to create a space to re-introduce the enriching properties of working together in a kitchen; to present, make, produce, share and celebrate an annual calendar of handmade food with those that SAT AT, or provisioned our kitchen table.
to create a space that worked to restorethe heart of the grade II listed farnham pottery and aided the reanimation of a wider creative community with A social and inspiring kitchen setting fuelled by fire and a sense of community; building wellbeing for our community through making and enjoying simple, wholesome and sustainable food. celebrating the craft of baking and the craft behind baking to promote a more traditional, seasonal productive, enjoyable and resilient way of living
What a journey! Now we are closed it has been a pleasure to leave a space that everybody loves when they walk into it and a warm hearth that will continue to be enjoyed as part of the pottery future.
The joy of creating a space somewhere new is always yet to come....
The Pugmill Bakehouse was proud to support international Slow Food principles and stood against the disappearance of local food traditions and people's dwindling interest in the food they eat, where it comes from, how it tastes and how our food choices affect the rest of the world.
in all that i do i seek to aid a shift in our present way of life towards the pleasures of the communal table.
Thanks for your attention.
