Wakelyns Bakery
Wakelyns, Fressingfield

Apple crumble. Apple cake. Apple pie… is there any baked apple delight that we don’t love?

Join us for a day of baking with the YQ population wheat, sown, grown and harvested on the farm, then freshly milled and baked by you, combining it with some of the 40 different apple varieties grown on the farm.

The day will begin with the Wakelyns Bakery team. They will introduce you to the bakery’s core values and how the kitchen works in relationship with the farm and local food producers and the work that they are doing together to build a stronger, more resilient, joyful and delicious localised and sustainable food system.

After tea, coffee and biscuits, we’ll walk the farm and see agroforestry in action. We will harvest apples and bring them back to the bakery to wash and prepare. From morning to afternoon with a lunch break – of course, including apples – we will then make wholegrain YQ cakes, pies and crumbles with the apples.

What you will learn:

  • an understanding of the agroforestry system and its diversity, resilience and productivity
  • how to bake sweet things with wholegrain flour
  • how to adapt baking and cooking recipes to the seasons
  • interesting flavour combinations and the tastes and textures for creating your own apple baking recipes at home
  • how to bake with apples
  • apple varieties
  • what is the ‘YQ’ ORC Wakelyns population wheat

What is included:

  • refreshments throughout the day from elevenses to lunch to tea and cake
  • your creations from the day to take home – cake, pie and crumble
