Bread has been a staple food for over eight thousand years. Before the mass produced bread of the mid 1900's every culture crafted a local loaf, be it flat, tinned or hand-shaped. Today bakers are challenging 50 years of industrial and uniform bread by fusing tradition with contemporary global food know-how to create a new culture of the loaf. 

BREADEAR was formed in 2016 by public food anthropologist and food writer Bee Farrell as a personal project. She writes and talks regularly about bread and her illustrations and written work seek to document and celebrate unique and regional bread. She is a member of The Guild of Food Writers.

 BREADEAR products are made with the best ecologically certified card, inks and cloth from local ethical suppliers.
