Andrea Brabazon purchased Loafer in 2007 from Antoine and Georg Von Baich with a commitment to uphold their ethos of quality products made with care from local and seasonal ingredients.
Today, Loafer takes time to source the best quality ingredients from sustainable suppliers as much as we can. Using organic or biodynamic wherever possible, our milk, meat and eggs are ethically sourced and genuine free range.
With a respect for traditional processes and a strong belief in not cutting corners, Loafer Bread specialises in hand shaped sourdough breads made with certified Demeter biodynamic flours and grains or certified stoneground flours. Reducing waste by baking only what we will sell, it's best to get up early to make sure you don't miss out.
We are proud of the strong relationships we have built with our suppliers. We firmly believe in the environmental value of biodynamics and the importance of using only true free range meat, milk and eggs. We use the following ingredients when possible:
Powlett Hill - Biodynamic Wholemeal Wheat, Rye & Spelt Flours
Mount Zero - Olive oil, olives
Coffee Supreme - Coffee
Cherry Tree Organics - Organic free-range Beef, Lamb, Ham and Chicken
