We are Rosemarie and Sile Hardy, 'Hardy Food'.
We started our artisan food business simply enough by looking for a good quality pesto.
We could not find a single one that did not havesome filler, preservative or alternative ingredient in it. So we started making our own. An unadulterated pesto to an original Italian recipe.
To cover the cost of making such a delicious but expensive production we decided to sell our pesto at the local food market. Very soon we realised it was the bread on which we offered the tasters of our pesto that was of more interest to our customers!
Above is our oat bread - we make 4 varieties: seeded, organic, lactose free and fruit and nut.
Our Oat loaves are made with only 4 ingredients (3 in the case of our organic loaf).
