Blue Wren Bakery is our micro bakery with the aim of making tasty sourdough breads and sweets. We focus on making sourdough with a long, natural fermentation to get the best flavour and to make breads with just flour, salt and water and therefore no need for any commercial additives or preservatives.
We are passionate about using as many local ingredients as possible, by working closely with and doing what we can to support our suppliers. We hope to help educate others on what it takes to grow and supply them with their everyday food, and helping to re-build the idea of a local grain economy.
Where to find us…
We are currently delivering bread to the Grampians Store in Pomonal on Monday, Wednesday and Saturdays. We will be baking a smaller range of our breads as listed below, but this may change depending on what ingredients we can source. To keep it interesting though, we’ll occasionally be baking a special loaf such as our spelt and oat porridge, baguettes or fruit bread.
If you’d like to place an order for something specific or a large quantity, please send us an email at email@example.com. Payment via bank transfer is preferable, and we’ll send you the details for making a payment via email. Please provide at least two days notice to ensure we have enough loaves for all orders and enough time to build up our sourdough culture before making your loaf.
For example, please place your order by Thursday for pick up on Saturday.
Country loaf (aka our bird-house-loaf made with a blend of flours)

Considering recent events and those yet to unfold, we are currently unsure as to when our next farmers market will be. Please stay in contact as we hope to be able to sell our baked goods at market again as soon as it’s possible to do so.
