About Francis Bread

Is this your business?

    Francis Bread is a bread and pastry focused bakery located on Salt Spring Island, BC. We respectfully acknowledge that we live and work within the ancestral and unceded traditional territory of the Hul’qumi’num and SENĆOŦEN speaking peoples. We bake naturally leavened bread in a wood fired oven using BC grown organic grains. We sell our bread at our summer pop up at The Jam Factory at 319 Upper Ganges Road as well as the Salt Spring Tuesday Market.

    Is your bread sourdough?

    Yes! Naturally leavened is another term for sourdough. Our breads are fermented in the natural way and any type of “sour”or fermented type of flavour comes only from the natural fermentation process

    Is your bread vegan?

    Mostly yes! All of our breads contain a base of salt, water, flour and leaven with the exception of our brioche bread and the occasional loaf we add cheese to.

     

     

    Where do you source your ingredients?

    All of our whole grains are grown organically in British Columbia and milled fresh every few weeks in Cowichan Bay by True Grain

    We use a high quality, high milk fat, grass fed butter from New Zealand. We have tried to source a Canadian butter of the same quality but have yet to find it.

    All of our sifted organic all purpose grain comes from Saskatchewan

    We use organic BC milk, cream and yogurt. Local island goat’s cheese, organic aged cheddar from Quebec.

    For our lunch offerings we source produce from local island farms, pasture raised meats from Salt Spring or Vancouver Island, cured meats from a five generation charcuterie producer in the lower mainland.
