FEATURED PRODUCER – HEDGEHOG BAKERY
LOCAL SWEET BAKERY FROM STAINDROP. TRUE BAKE LOVERS AND THE RETURN OF THE BROWNIE BOMBS!
Hedgehog Bakery is made up of three passionate individuals aiming to satisfy the sweet tooth of the North East & North Yorkshire. It is a small family run business, fully food safe with a 5* hygiene rating.
People are able to order products via the online shop www.thehedgehogbakery.co.uk alternatively they can visit one of the stockists: The Foxes Tale Cafe (Bishop Auckland), Mini Eden (Kirkby Stephen), Pie Demand (Carlisle) Simon’s Butchers (Staindrop), The Pasta Shop (Darlington)
The company often runs competitions on social media where people can win vouchers or free products. It offers a ‘Blue Lights’ discount of 10% and at the start of lockdown, started producing Graze Boxes for key workers at cost value. People were buying them to send to Hospitals, fire stations, schools, police stations which was a nice gesture, trying to lift spirits in these crazy times.
According to the team: “This year has been the most challenging year yet. We’ve had to completely restructure our business and move online due to the lack of events, resulting in a huge hit on our revenue. The move to online has prompted the creation of our online shop which has proven to be quite popular, especially at the start of lockdown when the orders were coming in tenfold. In addition to our online shop, we have started producing our Blondie and Brownie stacks, which are our take on a birthday cake but only using traybakes.
“Last but not least our treat boxes will be running these up until Christmas, customers get a selection of six of our best sellers; they are able to collect from our HQ in Bishop Auckland or have them posted anywhere in the UK.”
Great for some self indulgence or a treat for family and friends.
