It's all about the bread

At Barley Cove Artisan Bakery we make real bread using traditional artisan techniques. We specialise in slow fermented hand crafted breads and we make a great range of traditional breads too – some with an added twist. Everything is made at our bakery in Belfast and we sell it everywhere from street stalls and farmers’ markets to delis and restaurants.

We're proud to say that we never use processing aids and you’ll never find any hidden ingredients, artificial additives or preservatives in our bread. All our bread starts with just flour and water. Usually we add salt and yeast. Sometimes we add other good things – olive oil, cheese, herbs, seeds… but that’s it. The dough is made by hand and left to slow ferment. When it’s ready, we bake it. Simple.

The Great Taste Awards think we're great

Our Garlic and Black Olive Focaccia, Treacle Wheaten and Seaweed and Crispy Onion Soda were all awarded a gold star by the Great Taste Awards 2014.
