The latest stockist of our products is a garden centre which celebrates the best of local produce.

Rosebourne, in Aldermaston, Berks, is now stocking a selection of our bakes.

As of Friday, 20 March, the garden centre is stocking pull-apart loaves (both tomato, and cheese and onion-flavoured), olive flutes and focaccia which, like all Bread & Beyond products, are free from additives and preservatives.

Lynne Doherty, Prior’s Court’s Head of Commercial Enterprises, said: “It is hugely important that local enterprises support one another and so it is fantastic news that Rosebourne is now stocking our products and backing our work.

“With only 32% of autistic adults in the UK in any form of work, it is important that the opportunity to gain employment-relevant skills is available to the young people at Prior’s Court. By becoming a stockist, Rosebourne is helping to support our young people to thrive.

“All profits from Bread & Beyond products go back into the work of the Prior’s Court Foundation so Rosebourne customers will be supporting efforts to close the ‘autism employment gap’ – as well as enjoying delicious, hand-crafted baked goods.”

Michael Wilford, Group Food Buyer at Rosebourne, said: “Rosebourne is a firm believer of supporting local and offering the very best in fresh, quality products for our customers. With this in mind, we are delighted to be working alongside Prior’s Court and Bread & Beyond. A selection of their baked goods will be going in-store and we know our customers are going to be as excited as we were to try the products.”

Bread & Beyond was set up to provide work-skills training to Prior’s Court’s young people who have severe autism and complex learning difficulties.

Baking is an activity which suits the strength and skills of people with autism; highly process driven, practical and with an end product which is rewarding and motivating.

While the bakery shop is not open to the general public, Bread & Beyond products are available at the Hog & Hedge, in Newbury, Casey Fields Farm Shop, in Ashampstead, and Yattendon Village Stores, in Yattendon. The bakery also supplies all the bread and baked goods on the Prior’s Court site, catering for around 90 young people and 500 staff members.
