Sourdough Starter


A kilner jar of Hobbs House Bakery’s 60 year old Sourdough.Will bake an infinite amount of sourdough bread.


The Hobbs House Bakery Sourdough Starter is a living, multi award winning wild yeast culture. It has been fed daily for an incredible 60 years.

In June 2015, 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.

For our recipes using your sourdough starter; the Sourdough Starter recipe, Feeding a Sourdough Starter and a Sourdough Bread recipe. 

We also have a Small Bread Making Kit which also include a Sourdough Starter and is an excellent gifts for any bread lover.

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”

We often find that the Sourdough Starter is bought as a gift which is a lovely idea. Please be aware that this item must be refrigerated within 48 hours of arrival.
