Julia's Rich Heritage

Julia's Bakery

A rich heritage 
Since 1964

We are an award-winning family craft bakery with a rich heritage of providing handmade bread, cakes and preserves for retail and catering customers.

The business started life as a butchers some three generations ago. In 1999 we acquired the locally famous Smithard's Bakery in Ashby-de-la-Zouch. Those humble, hard-working early days still colour the way things are done now.

At our craft bakery we make and bake fresh every day in small batches, delivering products as soon as they have cooled after leaving our ovens. We produce from scratch using true craft methods and traditional recipes, finessed over many years.  

Our artisan treats and delicacies are made from the finest ingredients, using traditional techniques and family recipes which have been passed down and developed through generations.
