Currently employee 15 staff, but have cut back (like we do every summer). Winter (Apr-Oct) we have up to 25-28 staff as that’s our busiest time.
We do a lot of wholesale to sporting clubs, and local cafes/takeaway, (and DUBBO) and schools also.
We make everything onsite, and as the property is huge, we have plenty of room for storage of packaging, stock, and equipment.
We own our own forklift, which comes in handy for deliveries.
We have trained baristas and pride ourselves on selling barista quality coffee.
Our pies, and our name are well known throughout the Central West and we have a large Facebook following, creating many online orders for cakes.
I started my apprenticeship at this bakery with the original owner back in the late 80’s. I worked for Ian Head until 2001 when he sold the bakery, and then my wife & I bought it in 2004.
We have successfully worked the bakery for 15yrs, while raising four kids, all have, and still do work with us, contributing in some way or another. We are a family bakery.

About The Area
Although in a drought affect area, our business has proved resilient in these times due to smart restructuring.
We closed our cafe side in April 2018, where we did breakfasts and sit down cafe style meals. This dropped our wages costs a lot & left us to focus on the bakery side.
Business always slows down during warmer months, so we just made cutbacks in advertising, sponsorships etc
Locals are committed to supporting local business.
