About our bakery
Fosterton Farm Bakery was established in 2002 to service the Newcastle area and was based at the Honeysuckle Market. It was moved in 2003 to the farm at Fosterton where the bakery was custom built to suit our level of production.
The first priority has always been the quality of the product. We are continuously striving to improve the nutrition, taste and appearance of what we make with better ingredients, methods &/or equipment. Therefore, our expansion has always been slow and considered - aiming to improve the quality. We now have an Austrian stone mill so we can freshly mill the flour each week. We source Certified Biodynamic and Organic grains from Australian farmers for the mill.
We are blessed by the unique location for the bakery. Overlooking the river flats with good clean air and plenty of fresh clean rainwater, we believe this adds to the subtle taste or energy in our products.
We are conscious that we live in a world of misplaced and dwindling resources, so it is vital that we are responsible and ethical in our business practices. Living on a farm makes it easy to recycle our waste. Animals and chickens eat leftovers and scraps, water runs off into the orchard. We grow the vegetables, eggs and meat for our savoury pastries and have a small number of beehives which supply us with honey. We purchase our grain direct from biodynamic and organic farmers, storing it on our farm and milling it freshly each week. It is our conviction that by being a part of and supporting biodynamic/organic growers and suppliers we are contributing to a more ethical and equitable food supply chain for those who are interested in making a change.
