Meet Dara & Ciara
we have been fortunate enough to travel & live in New Zealand and whilst there we discovered a new passion for fresh, locally produced food in tune with the seasons. returning home and struggling to find real bread on the North Coast, we turned our hand to making our own. Very quickly our friends and family would be disappointed if we visited with nothing freshly baked for them. REALISING WE WERE NOT ALONE IN OUR SEARCH FOR REAL BREAD AND DELICIOUS SWEET BAKES, URSA MINOR WAS BORN.
We are self taught bakers, our unique style comes from a mixture of old and new. We take inspiration from traditional recipes and techniques but also CONTINUALLY RESEARCH NEW IDEAS AND EXPERIMENT WITH DIFFERENT, exciting FLAVOURS.
Over the past year we have worked with fantastic cafés who share our passion and ethos for slow, locally produced, organic food. we have been overwhelmed by the support we have gained fWe love the North Coast and are extremely excited to be one of the many fantastic food producers working hard to showcase and develop a culture of quality food. We strongly believe that you should do what you love and thankfully we get to do that everyday.
We love being able to share our story with everyone we meet, Ursa Minor is only beginning and from here the future looks great!
