Great to have Esther and Joe Barron, Barron’s Bakery, Cappoquin join us :-)

There is a wonderful mixture of new and old bakery’s on board now and we should have a couple more of the newer ones with us shortly.

But this post is to welcome Esther and Joe Barron who are based down in Cappoquin. The bakery was founded in 1887 and they have the distinction of using the oldest working bread oven in the country.

They have a wide range of breads of which their Rye sourdough, Wheat sourdough, country style and spelt are all real breads. The sourdoughs feature in the photos below. I have also included a video which I shot in 2011 when I visited as part of the West Waterford Festival of Food.

Details of their bakery, their coffee shop and their book are all on their website here.
