We bake handmade, authentic sourdough in a 19th century woodfired scotch oven in Trentham, central Victoria. Cafe, tours and classes.

Our authentic sourdoughs are leavened with a natural, wild culture of yeasts and healthy bacteria. We don’t use bakers’ yeast, preservatives or any other additives.

Our loaves are made with organic flour, shaped by hand and baked in a woodfired oven, built in 1891 - one of only a handful of Scotch ovens still operating in Australia.

‘The best bakery in the world. It’s been a privilege to be inside. This is all about heart, passion and a love for making great bread.’ George Calombaris, MasterChef, 2013

‘I had RedBeard sourdough for breakfast and it was absolutely delicious. RedBeard is doing a wonderful job to promote the resurgence of authentic sourdough and artisan woodfired baking.’ Maggie Beer, legendary cook and restaurateur, 2010

‘It’s relaxed and charming, the location is gorgeous and their bread is fantastic.’ The Age, 2011

09 April 2019 • Redbeard Historic Bakery Bread Baking Workshop

What a wonderful day spent in the RedBeard bakery learning the art of sourdough bread making. John and his staff were very welcoming. We learnt about the finer points of sourdough bread making in a very relaxed environment,. All questions were answered and there was lots of opportunities for hands on bread making skills. Loved that we got to bake our own bread in the 125 year old wood fired oven. We enjoyed fabulous tasty food and got to take home lots of our own baked bread. I came away from the workshop very empowered. I can highly recommend this day to anyone interested in bread making. Thank you John.
