Our Bakery!


Cathryn Dresser, a 2012 Great British Bake Off finalist, performed the opening ceremony for us.

The bakery is where we make our new Crisplins – a healthy alternative to crisps - delicious Flaplins (flapjacks made with milled linseed) and Sussex Ginger Fruitlin cakes which will be available to buy online through our website.

We were also joined by Cool Recipes for Hot Women ladies Jenny Tschiesche and Pat Duckworth, High Sheriff of West Sussex Jonathan Lucas and MEP Richard Ashworth.

This is what our farmer Durwin Banks had to say: “Not only is linseed tasty and versatile in baking – as our new products demonstrate - but it’s also packed with healthy omega 3, which is essential in a balanced diet. And that’s the key message we want these products to convey – that good, wholesome food doesn’t have to be boring!”

We made a very special delivery of 25 litres of home-pressed linseed oil to celebrate the 13-strong herd’s newest arrival.
Not-so-little Mirembe, the 22nd to be born at Howletts Wild Animal Park in Bridge near Canterbury, weighed in at a healthy 150kg when she joined mum Tammi and 11-foot-tall, 6100kg proud dad Jums in June.

The herd – the largest in the UK – consumes about a litre of linseed oil a day, but little Mirembe, will have to wait until she’s on solid food before she gets a taste.
