More? The Artisan Bakery creates a continuously evolving range of artisan breads, seasonal desserts and patisserie. Totally taste driven we individually craft each of our products with the utmost care and attention.
Nestled in the South Lakes village of Staveley you will find our award winning artisan bakery and the home of the famous More? Muddees! We use only the finest quality, natural ingredients in our breads and patisseries. As true artisans, we believe in hand crafting honest products and reviving traditional baking techniques.
In 2006, after a career spanning over twenty years in some of the Lake District’s finest country houses, renowned local chef Patrick Moore started More? Artisan. It was his dream to create real alternatives to mass produced industrial food products so prolific in the modern world. Initially selling his wares exclusively at farmers’ markets, food fairs and events, the overwhelming demand for More? products was the catalyst in founding More? The Artisan Bakery.
Over the past few years we have been lucky enough to win many awards spanning the most prestigious events in the baking world. We feel privileged to have been considered and ultimately win on numerous occasions, alongside many of Patrick’s esteemed friends and peers.
