who we are

About Sourdough by the Sea

We are a tiny kitchen that makes hand-made sourdough starters, in Brighton, East Sussex, England.

Like most good things, this was a hobby that turned into a business as we love making bread, and want to help others become better bakers too.

Our goal is to get people eating more healthy bread, and we believe that making your own starter is a great way to do so.

There are so many other benefits to making sourdough! Wellbeing, mindfulness, relaxation, and being aware of what goes into your body.

Jim and Fiona (pictured) have shared their love of their starters with customers at local markets and craft fairs, as well as online marketplaces. So far we have sent starters to over 19 23 countries.

We’re dedicated to providing our customers with the best possible service, so it’s no surprise that we have 5 star reviews on Etsy. We also provide support and guidance for all of our customers, so you don’t have to worry about going it alone when it comes time to make your starter.
