Why Motherdough?

Although it is possible and easy to create a sourdough culture from scratch, using Motherdough has several advantages:

She is more reliable.

She is more stable, active, and resilient.

She is more adaptable and versatile.

She can guarantee a more pleasantly flavoured product.

She is easier to bring back to health when she gets a bit off balance.


If you kill her within the first 60 days of purchase, we'll replace her for free*


Take the sour out of "sourdough"

Use our 101 year old wild yeast to discover natural fermentation baking on your sourdough adventure the easy way. 

Anyone can start a sourdough culture from scratch. Getting it to a point of being stable and predictable in producing delicate flavoured bread with a strong rise is where the challenges begin.
