A scarecrow likes nothing better than a good feed of bread, and he likes to scare the crows away from getting at it.

That’s why we are delighted to have Speltbakers at this year’s Scarecrow Festival in Durrow, Co Laois in the heart of Ireland and we are looking forward to enjoying their wonderful delights.

Speltbakers is a small family run business and they just love to bake, they started out in business back in 2010 in the family kitchen and in 2013 with grant aid from Kilkenny Leader Partnership turned an old unused shed into a bakehouse. From selling a couple of loaves in Glasrai and Goodies in Gowran in 2010, they now stock lots of shop in the Kilkenny, Carlow and Waterford area.

Early hours, long hours but the most productive and creative job, they are currently recruiting if you are interested! Give them a shout!

Like so many of the other wonderful food and craft providers who will be at the festival, they show what can be done with a little enthusiasm and no little creativity.
