The Lincolnshire Plumbread Company was set up in 2010 to specifically promote
Lincolnshire Plumbread outside the County of Lincolnshire.
We currently post Plumbread all over the world to countries including the USA, Canada, Australia, Spain, Portugal and Holland.
The Company was formed by Hollie Pocklington & her brother Christopher; the fifth generation of bakers who have lived at the family bakery in Withern since 1924.
The Plumbread is made in the family bakery, fresh daily from locally sourced ingredients wherever possible, including flour made from wheat grown on the Lincolnshire Wolds.
The secret of a good moist Plumbread lies in the quality of the fruit. All our dried fruit is sourced directly from the grower. Based on the Aegean coast in Turkey, Unsoy are BRC accredited, growing and drying all their fruit well away from the main roads avoiding any noxious traffic fumes.We sell two types of Plumbread, the Traditional and the Luxury.
The Traditional Plumbread is based on a recipe used by Myra Pocklington in the early 1930â€™s to feed the farm workers on the family farm. Covered in home churned butter, she would take it out to the farm hands in the fields at break time. Later this ritual would involve a thick chunk of home churned cheddar cheese.
The Luxury Plumbread was developed in May 2011 through customer feedback. We were asked to produce a loaf using our traditional recipe, but with a hint of mixed spice and some cherries, for a large wholesale customer. The few spare loaves from the batch, were sampled in our shops by our customers.
The demand was there so we went into full production.
