Long Crichel’s bread is a delicious artisanal loaf. The bread is left to rise slowly between 24 and 36 hours. This means only a tenth of the usual yeast amount is needed, making this bread easier to digest. Best when buttered and dunked into soup.

Founders of the Famous Hedgehog Bakery, Jamie and Rose Campbell, have always been passionate about good food and where it comes from. After living in Canada and London, they made the next obvious move to a small village in the wilds of Dorset. Here, they set about renovating a charming 18th century stable block and its gardens. And now, for nearly two decades later their skilled bakers have been using traditional techniques to make real bread. It’s shaped by hand, proved on linen 'couches' in wooden cupboards and placed in a wood-fired oven using wooden peels, just a few loaves at a time. They only use the best organic ingredients, which is what makes their bread so unique and delicious.

Ingredients & allergens

Unbleached white wheat flour* (contains wheat flour*, calcium carbonate, iron, niacin, thiamine), Water, Sea salt, Yeast * produced to organic standards. For allergens, including cereals containing gluten, please see ingredients in bold. May contain traces of Egg, Nuts, Milk & Sesame.

Storage & prep

Best stored in bread bins made out of wood or unglazed clay as metal and plastic prevent the bread from 'breathing' and encourage the growth of mould. Cotton bags or even paper bags are good provided they are stored in a cool dry place. Do not store bread in the refrigerator as this actually encourages the ageing process. Our bread freezes well, but it is only worth doing if you want to store it for more than 5 days.
