About Wild Fuschia
Most of my childhood memories evoke a mix of tastes and smells associated with baking with my Granny and Great Aunt Maisie; hovering beside the range as Maisie mixed the pancake batter and my big brother and I raced to see who could eat the most pancakes. I never won the race, but I always got my fill of those sugary, moreish delights, which smelt so good, so I never really lost.
My mother carried on the tradition and is affectionately known as Granny Bun, creating more memories for her Grandchildren. I feel I’m simply taking my place in a long line of women who loved to bake and to share that love with their nearest and dearest.
I’ve developed a range of baked goods in the bakery that will help with meal times to make them easier, tastier and fresher. A busy schedule shouldn’t mean we have to compromise on the good things in life.
At Wild Fuschia Bakehouse, I like to keep it simple. I only use a small number of good quality ingredients, locally sourced where possible, ensuring you get great quality and taste.
Also, if you want to try your hand at baking bread at home, I have developed the Wild Fuschia Bakehouse Dry Mix Range. Simple, wholesome, tasty products that bring our shop recipes to your home oven, with great results.

Being Eco Friendly at Wild Fuschia Bakehouse
At Wild Fuschia Bakehouse, we think everyone has a part to play in protecting the environment.
A lot of time and thought is put into the packaging we use in store. For example, our coffee cups, cake / pastry packaging and forks, spoons etc are compostable. They are, however, still single use, so we have some way to go on this front.
This year we will work with our customers to promote the use of reusable cups by offering a 25 cent discount to people who bring their own mugs for coffee and tea.
In addition, the shop uses a Compost Bin for egg shells, other organic waste and compostable items and a Recycling Bin for glass, plastic, metal cans, cardboard etc
Where possible, we shop local, reducing our business’ carbon footprint. In season, we grow and use our own strawberries, loganberries, tomatoes, salad leaves and rhubarb.
We are committed to reducing our waste by reusing and recycling the boxes and packaging that we use to ship our hampers and bread mixes in. If you receive your bread mixes in a shoe box or wine box you will know that you are all helping us be a more Eco Friendly business.
There is always room to improve and new things to learn. Your suggestions are welcome on firstname.lastname@example.org
