Roger Haycock

Our self-taught master baker.

 

Roger's baking journey all began one Christmas when Lindsay bought him the Emmanuel Hadjiandreou book 'How to Make Bread'. At the time they owned the local deli/greengrocers store in Marsden. The decision was made to convert the small cellar into a bakery and Roger began producing bread to sell in the shop using a single deck stone pizza oven.

The product spoke for itself and was an instant hit and wholesale enquiries began coming in almost immediately. The natural progression was to sell the shop and focus on baking. In September 2015 Roger's Bakery opened on Warehouse Hill in Marsden. In this short time the business is supplying over 30 customers and producing more than 90,000 loaves per year.

 

Michael Booth

Assistant Baker Extraordinaire.

 

Michael first met Roger when he attended one of his Bread Making courses in 2013. This sparked an interest that lead him to study for a Diploma in Food at Kirklees College.

He then completed an apprenticeship at a local bakery making all manner of baked goods and confectionary before moving to Rogers Bakery to concentrate his considerable talents on bread.

Michael enjoys the 'relaxed atmosphere' of working at the Bakery and takes great pride in creating 'a world class product'.
