We are a local artisan bakery and workers co-op. All our bread is slow-fermented and made by hand using organic flour, in our small Leeds-based bakery. We are passionate about making great tasting bread that is good for people, and is made using simple, high quality ingredients, organic and local where possible.
We bake a range of sourdough bread, from white sourdough, to German-style 100% rye bread, and also offer non-sourdough breads such as ciabatta loaves and our deli rye, a mild rye loaf combined with caraway seeds. We also make doughnuts, filled with either custard or jam. In all cases, the dough is fermented, hand-shaped and made using as many organic ingredients as possible.
As a values-led enterprise, we aim to provide an ethical and enjoyable livelihood for all our workers whilst reducing the environmental impact of the bread we produce.
We are based on the co-op values of democracy, self-help, self-responsibility, equality, equity and solidarity. We aim for a non-hierarchical workplace where empowerment of workers, care of the community and collective self-reliance are at the core of how we function.

Since the Headingley, Horsforth & Oakwood markets are cancelled for the foreseeable future, we at Swillington Organic Farm & Headbangers have teamed up to create a market collective, allowing all markets to operate on a smaller scale in a different environment on the 2nd Saturday of each month at our farm shop in Swillington. The first Market Collective will be on Saturday 9th May.
