Sourdough Starter

Delivery info

The Hobbs House Bakery Sourdough Starter is a living, multi award winning wild yeast culture. It has been fed daily for an incredible 65 years.

In June every year, it has it's birthday and there is quite a party.

In that time it's raised some of the finest bread. Refrigerated it can rest for weeks. Fed, it can raise you an infinite amount of magnificent loaves. To become a custodian of this edible heritage is priceless.

We do like to encourage everyone to go to our Sourdough Nation, which is full of really helpful information. As the Sourdough starter is a living culture, it changes and develops all the time.

One of our customers, Julia Moore who is an avid baker herself said that “after a 3 week rest in the fridge your starter refreshed beautifully & raised an amazing loaf".
