So this is us, the face of Little Green Vegan Bakery. The fact that it has been two years since my last post is very telling – it has been a very busy two years which have included moving the business out of home into my own little bakery with a shopfront and having a little green vegan baby! But those are both stories in themselves. I aim to revamp this site to make it more functional, so this is just a quick post to reintroduce myself and the business.
Little Green Vegan Bakery is now an actual physical bakery. The little green building (yes, it is actually green) nestles in the small Cornish town of St Agnes, almost (but not quite) opposite a butchers shop! The people of St Agnes are a friendly bunch though and we have been very well supported by local residents and businesses as well as customers coming from further afield.
If you manage to cross the road and navigate the step into the bakery you will find yourself in a green and purple haven of tasty treats. We sell cakes by the slice, muffins, brownies, cookies, viennese whirls, scones, and when possible teacakes, croissants, quiches and more. We share the bakery with the Cornish Vegan Pasty Company and sell their pasties too. We have an expanding vegan pantry section with chocolate, store cupboard staples and a few toiletries. We try to be plastic free and Eco friendly and are planning on stocking some zero waste items.
The business is run by me, Joceline, an ex plant biologist-turned Occupational Therapist- turned baker. I am married to the lovely Mark whom I have trained up as my sous chef and he also does deliveries. My apprentice is Juniper, nearly a year old and soon to be trained up! Mark’s other role is in further education management and he was also an ecologist in a former life. We met in Bangor, North Wales where we did our PhD’s together. We have four children ranging in age from 11 months to 15 years. We want to grow the business for them.
I love my business, it really is amazing to be involved in the important events of peoples lives. I have made cakes for christenings, weddings, first birthdays, 80th birthdays and gender reveal parties. I can be a shy creature but I do really enjoy meeting and chatting to you all and finding out more about you. I have my amazing regular customers including the family who come in and take over the shop, opening the cookie jar and plucking things off the counter; the lady who buys bread every week; the post yoga cakers; the school mums; the hungry activists and the people who take two different buses to get to us. There are the people who come in excitedly after following us on social media and finally visiting Cornwall. There are families who walk in in delight realising they can choose anything on the menu. There is, occasionally, even the butcher!
If you haven’t been to see us yet, please do. You will be most welcome and hopefully will be tempted with our treats. Thanks for reading!
