About

Mayfield Farm Bakery:

We believe in good, wholesome food, traditionally made without the use of unnecessary preservatives and colourings. We use flour milled by the Essex firm of Marriages, they are a sixth generation family business who are leading experts in producing top quality flour, much of which is grown in Essex. Whether you are looking for the very best quality bread for yourself, for a gift, or you’d just like to try something different, why not come and see what we have to offer.

We believe:

We are keen to use the very best ingredients and from the closest source, keeping food miles to a minimum and our impact on the environment as small as possible. At Mayfield Farm Bakery we believe everyone should do what they can to support others. This can be a challenge, especially as most of our time is devoted to baking artisan bread and cakes. However, what if we could help by supplying discounted bread and cakes for others to sell, consume and raise funds for good causes? Whether you are holding a charity coffee morning or fund raising for your local school, if your event could benefit please let us know. Wherever possible we will support most good causes, especially those concerning children, young adults, older people and the environment.

We also believe everyone should do what they can to reduce their impact on the environment. To this end we try to source the best ingredients as locally as possible, keeping food miles to a minimum and our carbon emissions as low as we can. We use biodegradable packaging wherever possible and keep plastics to a minimum, reducing our impact on landfill.

When we have bread food waste we would rather give it to animal charities for feed than see it go to landfill. If you are an animal sanctuary and could make use of any food waste then please contact us so we can arrange collection.

History:

Nick Anderson is from a family with a very long history in baking, it’s in the blood as they say! As a boy of about ten, during the school holidays Nick went with his father to the bakery early in the morning, that is when his first interest in the family business was sparked. Father, uncles, cousins, grandfather and great grandfather have all been bakers.

Tracing Nick’s family tree back to 1680 we found no less than 32 bakers, some bakery owners others journeymen working where needed at various different bakeries.

The family started off in Devonshire in the village of Dunchidicock – famous for treacle mines. By the early 1800’s some of the family started moving and eventually settled in North East London. We found the majority of the men in the family described as ‘bakers’ in the census, although there was also an accounts clerk and book keeper. Perhaps John Vooght 1839 – 1897 saw an advantage to having a couple of his sons looking after the business side of the bakery.
