Buy a live, reliable sourdough starter culture.

Dried cultures can be very difficult to activate, so we only sell fresh, live sourdough starter cultures which are very reliable and easy to get going.

We offer two well-proven sourdough cultures from around the world, as used in our own bakery, which are ready to use within 24 hours.
