Carols Home Bakery began production in May 2009.After the collapse of the construction industry my husband and I decided to start our own Home Bakery in Lough Gowna, County Cavan. I always had a keen interest in baking and realized there was a gap in the food market for homemade bakery products, so, in May of 2009 having completed all the necessary food safety courses we started production in our own bakery beside our home. After weeks of testing and tasting many recipes we decided to settle on an apple tart recipe that I got from my mother who is also a keen baker herself. The bakery started off supplying a few small shops in the area with Apple and Rhubarb tarts and Rockbuns.
The Bakery began to grow quickly mainly because most of the Supervalu stores in our local area were very supportive and stocked all of our products; this helped greatly in getting our products recognised throughout County Cavan and surrounding areas.
Now with the help of Supervalu, Cavan Enterprise Board and The Food Academy, who gave us the resources and information to research the market, we are now expanding our range of products to include Luxury Handmade Bakewells. The three new delicious Bakewells are Lemon, Luxury Caramel and Raspberry and Almond.
Why not be the judge and try our products for yourself, I promise you won’t be disappointed!
