Thank you for visiting the website of Willowtree Bread.
We own a small hobby farm in the heart of North Saanich on Vancouver Island. Charles is a hobby baker and in the cottage kitchen he makes artisan bread. which we sell all through the year to enthusiastic lovers of Real Bread !
Our artisan loaves are made using traditional long fermentation methods and organic flours. We are continually looking for ways to improve the quality of our breads and creating interesting flavours to enhance our repertoire. Sourdough bread is one of the staples here at the bakery. Sometimes we offer varieties such as Sourdough Squash & Seed Loaf or maybe Roasted Garlic & Rosemary - using our own pesticide free farm produce where we can of course!
Also, right here on the premises, we stone-grind Canadian grown organic Red Fife wheat which makes extremely tasty and nourishing loaves.
In the summer we supply North Saanich Farmers Market with Pain au Chocolat and Croissant which Charles makes from scratch. This type of pastry is a special passion for Charles and the results are mouth watering!
Mostly we sell our bread by a pre-order system which means that there is no waste and folk get exactly the bread they like from the week's choice!!
If you are interested in trying our bread please contact us for more information.
