Harvest Bag from Fellows Farm



Starting this September, you can now sign up for a weekly selection of Fellows Farm’s best Organic market garden vegetables.



They’ll be harvested and delivered to e5Bakehouse & e5PoplarBakehouse in London on Tuesdays and various pick-up points in Suffolk on Saturdays.



Local pick-up points are In da Cottage Framlingham, The Merchants Table Woodbridge and of course straight from the farm in Gosbeck (IP69TS).







There are 2 sizes available:

  • A small harvest bag for £60/month: 5-7 items which include a bunch of herbs (usually mixed), lettuce/mixed leaves, greens for cooking (such as chard or erbette), and whatever else is in season.

  • A large harvest bag for £80/month: the same contents as for the small bag but with more of 2 vegetables of the selection for the small bag, as for example more chard greens, courgettes and cucumbers for the first month.


To sign up to receive a nutritious weekly bag of organic vegetables on the Fellows Farm website here.

Gabija – from the Baltic to the Black Sea

Louise and Beta host this month’s E5 Bakehouse Supper Club Gabija. This feast is inspired by Beta’s home country Lithuania and Louise’s long-awaited but recently-cancelled (obvs) trip to Georgia.


A menu of dumplings, filled cabbage rolls, pickles and cheesy bread baked in our wood fired oven. All accompanied by lovely homemade liqueurs, natural wine from Provisions, exciting craft beers and fruity non-alcoholic drinks.


Your ticket includes a mix of homemade pickles, marinated cheese and sourdough crackers.


The main dish is a choice between two options:


Adjaruli Khachapuri – Famous stuffed bread from the Adjara region in southwest Georgia, baked in our wood fired oven with a mix of three cheeses, topped with an egg yolk and butter . Served with a fresh salad from Fellow’s farm.

Balandeliai (little pigeons) – Lithuanian cabbage rolls filled with rice and slow cooked in a tomato sauce. Served with a fresh salad from Fellow’s farm (VE)


There will be an additional menu with à la carte dinner options if you’d like to extend your evening and go for a Georgian style Supra! The full menu will be published on the E5 website and Instagram closer to the date.



Tickets available via our booking site here.

Hackney Wild. Recipes from e5.

We are very excited to finally offer our long awaited book of e5 recipes, and to say this has been a labour of love is an understatement. The idea and beginnings of this book started six years ago but we’ve finally had the time and space to bring our ideas together. We decided to self-publish and have the book printed by Calverts – a local print cooperative in Hackney.


This book captures a decade of e5 Bakehouse, from the opening of the first arch, to all the intricacies of milling, farming, and creating a community surrounding our love of sourdough.


Inside the pages of Hackney Wild you will find an in-depth guide to sourdough, recipes for our favourite cakes and loaves, and stories of how e5 Bakehouse came to be.


Order your copy here.


We can’t wait to share our story and recipes with you!

Our new bakery in Poplar

Introducing Poplar Bakehouse….our new bakery and refurbished cafe, shop and coffee roastery situated in an arts and events space, sandwiched between Bartlett Park and Limehouse Cut.


We’re open daily, baking a range of sourdough, pastries, cookies and cakes, hand roasting our small batch coffee, cooking up organic lunches and serving coffee. You can order online via our webshop here, or pop in for a takeaway.


To make the journey really worth your while, we also have a range of organic veggies from our farm in Suffolk as well as bulk dispensers filled with British grains and pulses.


Open daily 8.30 – 3.30pm.








Fellows Farm invite you to our first ‘Field to Plate’ two evenings of wood fired dinners with the option to camp and enjoy breakfast the following morning.

You will be invited for a tour of the market garden by Lughan Carr, former baker & chef turned regenerative gardener.  Lughan will give some insights into the approach and challenges experienced here over his first year on Fellows.

Nicola Hordern was at Ballymaloe under the tutorage of Lughan before moving on to cook at Quo Vardis and Darsham Nurseries in Suffolk.  Nicola is going to cook up the ingredients we grow along with other beautiful produce from Suffolk.  Ben, e5 & Fellows founder will be baking the bread.

It’s a case of BYOB but the fridge will be to hand and ice will be available.

Tree planting at Monewden, Suffolk

E5 Bakehouse has been making a foray into farming, our objective is to increase biodiversity, farm organically and lock up carbon. One definite means of achieving this is by planting trees.


To this end we are planting hedgerow and traditional orchard trees, in an agroforestry system, with support from the Woodland Trust. We have 6000 trees arriving imminently.


It’s a daunting task alone, but together it feels much more achievable.


Come and join us in Monewden to help plant trees together. We will lay on hot drinks, plus warming soup and bread.



Saturday 25th January

Saturday 15th February

Saturday 7th March



Cherry Tree Farm, Monewden, Woodbridge, Suffolk
