About Scotland The Bread (Bread For Good Community Benefit Society)

Scotland The Bread is a Community Benefit Society which is gradually improving the quality of grain (nutrient density, agro-ecological diversity) and bread (nutritional quality, digestibility, flavour, public access) in Scotland. We work with farmers, researchers, bakers, cooks and citizens to grow the supply of better flour and bread and to ensure that it reaches everyone as of right. We operate a small mill at the Bowhouse in Fife and sell flour to bakeries, shops and individuals, online and at the monthly Bowhouse market.
