Based in Cranborne an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty and established by Chris in 2014, Orchard Bay Bakery is an artisan bakery specializing in both traditional & sourdough bread and products.

We use age old methods to develop and produce a more nutritional and gut healthy loaf, all crafted by hand.

From our humble bakery we are on a mission to β€˜raise the vibes’ with our daily baked artisanal sourdough breads.

We believe that good bread makes you feel good. It warms the heart, it creates memories for life. It creates positive vibes and we want that to be the standard for happy, healthy humans who love their daily bread.

One of 3 retarders full of bread being binned due to the power outage as a result of #stormeunice. Alot of hard work goes into #realbread and its gutting having to throw away. We hope power will be restored before Monday πŸ™ there's a good week coming, I can feel it !! #raisingthevibes #bepositive ...

Our neighbours @sixpennybrewery #cheese night board looking amazing again this week πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ #cranborne #supportlocal #brewery #cheeseboard ...

The retarder froze nearly all the shaped doughs which resulted in some frantic defrosting in the oven while it warmed up!! But a few hours later and this is the result πŸ˜… blood pressure has levelled out again now !! #raisingthevibes #realbread ...

Don't forget #pizza #friday is every Friday, just phone through your order, or have a @sixpennybrewery #beer while you wait πŸ˜πŸ• ...

OMG this batch of #cubanos are insane, they use pork fat from @fromsalttosmoke panage pigs πŸ– which not only give a depth of flavour but also make the crumb very delicate and crispy πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹ ...
