They make all the good things that are traditionally baked in farmhouse kitchens
Oldtown Hill Bakehouse
Joy Moore's craft bakery is on the family's dairy farm; they produce a range of breads and cakes based on high quality ingredients - perhaps it's using their own full cream milk that gives that special flavour.
But that is not all - Joy's famouslty delicious wholemeal soda bread is not only made using home produced milk but, very unusually, the wheat has been grown locally too - and this bread is sugar free, yeast free and egg free with no artificial additives or preservatives.
The wholemeal bread is perhaps their best known product but they also make a range of scones, fresh apple and pear & almond tarts, fruit crumbles, cakes and buns - all the good things that are traditionally baked in farmhouse kitchens in fact.
Open by appointment, and they sell to wholesale and retail. Available in selected outlets in the South-East and East of Ireland, notably in SuperValu stores.
