The company’s ingredients are sourced locally or from Scottish and Fairtrade suppliers and many, such as the carrots, eggs and flour blends, come from organic producers. Products are baked by hand in small batches using traditional techniques.
If you want to have a go yourself, Auchtermuchty Cake Company has teamed up with BreadinFife to offer courses in gluten free bread making. Classes are held in Freuchie and Dunfermline and a day’s baking costs £75 with all ingredients and lunch included.
