Le fournil du Terly (bakery)
The project started during winter 2020 where we initiated the old bread oven's and the farm barn's renovation in the small hamlet of Le Terly, near Figeac (Lot, 46). During the 2021 summer season, the Fournil du Terly opened, offering a pelgrim gite with a dormitory, a bakery and a small fast food restaurant on the Saint Jacques de Compostelle hicking trail. The bakery part started in March 2021. All year, we are producing sourdough bread with an organic flour form Cantal (https://marcoles.fr/lescoopainsbio/), cookies, biscuits and brioches. With this project, we would like to : - preserve the local heritage of bread making with this kind of old fire oven. This type of oven are common in this area, but these are only occasionally used. Our methods of production are entirely hand-made, we knead by hand and we cook with fire. - support local economy by using local distribution chanels and offering a food service made of heatlhy, local and nourishing products. - create a welcoming space by including habitants in this project as well as the people that visit, pelgrims on their way and walker/fishermen around the Guirande lake. This first season was an amazing experience for the three of us and confirmed our wish to continue and let this project grow.
The collect will help us make some arrengements in the bakery in order for us to improve our work place : - install electricity and plumbing in the bakery (4000 euros) - renovate the roof cover in order to avoid water leaks (300 euros) - install a hood for a better smoke evacuation (300 euros) - create a protected space outdoor (400 euros)
