Apologies from the ginger team



Apologies to all those who tried contacting the Gingerbread Mam through the ViCita (that’s the orange pop-up box at the bottom left of the website). There appears to be a bug in the forwarding system, so I’m only just picking up emails. For the moment, and if in doubt please email  direct at : or call me 07968 195396 until the tech team (him indoors) fixes the problem. Also a special big thank you to my number 1 fan and little helper who travels with me to all  events and markets. What would I do without you.

New Gingerbread Mam foodie destinations

Taste of Teesdale A - (for Barnard Castle Farmers Market) - Raby








Is that November just around the corner?

It’s been such a busy week with new orders from more fabulous foodie destinations. Delighted to say Cross Lanes Organic Farm on the A66 near Barnard Castle, now stock both our home-made extra hot non-alcoholic ginger wine and also our ginger, milk rice puddings – perfect for autumnal comfort dinners.

The ginger range also made its way into Harrogate, now available at the very stylish Weetons delicatessens and the lovely Fodder farm shop and café with panaromic views across Crimple Valley.

We also made a trip to a very wet Northumberland this week visiting the Northumbria Hamper at Seahouses, a lovely gem of a shop that now stock our ginger wine and other goodies.

Don’t forget, if you’re in Fenwick York or Newcastle you can also purchase the Gingerbread Mam’s full home-made range including; wine, pokey, syrups, puddings, baking kits, badboy ginger beer, jerky, milk rice puddings and much more,

It’s back to the farmers’ markets this weekend at both Stokesley and Barnard Castle, were you’ll find everything to make the first week in November go with a bang. (sorry) x

Busy start to October

Taste of Teesdale A - (for Barnard Castle Farmers Market) - Raby



The Gingerbread Mam spent two lovely days at the Durham Extravaganza and Saltburn Farmers’ Market this week. Both events proved busy meeting lots of new and old customers. In Saltburn we were blessed with glorious blues skies and smiling faces. The ginger parkin went down a treat, so much so, I was left with no stock for Yarm on Sunday. (Sorry Yarm will make more next time). So it was back to baking this morning ready for the coming week. Thanks again to everyone who stopped by.


Best wishes


Back to ginger business at Barnard Castle & Stokesley

It’s proved a very busy summer for The Gingerbread Mam and my little helpers. Following a lovely weekend spent at Alnwick Food Festival and the fabulous Festival of Thrift (with a staggering 40,000 visitors over the two-day event), we’re back this weekend spreading the ginger word at Stokesley and Barnard Castle Farmers’ Markets.

Our hencoop has also been busy with the arrival of two new faces, Amber and Pokey. They took a little settling into their new surroundings, but are now producing the goods with the richest orange yoked eggs. Free range and organic, they patrol the garden like guard dogs.  Friendly and docile following me around and happy to share the garden seat when it’s time for a cuppa.













One of our best sellers this summer has been our new range of ginger syrups. Rhubarb and raspberry flavor, they make the perfect accompaniments for porridge, coffee or as an extra zing in your prosecco. Also fast of the shelves are have been our sticky ginger sponge, ginger-rice puddings, pokey, not to mention our famous home-made ginger wine, ideal if you’re going sober this October, if not just add again to your prosecco.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

Best wishes
