Meet the Locals – Baker Tom

Continuing our Meet the Locals series, we can’t WAIT to introduce you to Baker Tom! If you haven’t sunk your teeth into a slice of his epic sourdough – smothered in good Cornish dairy butter and maybe topped with one of our eggs straight from the hen house of course – you really haven’t been doing your Glynn Barton holidays right!! But they deliver to us here in the depths of the Cornish countryside so there’s still time to fix things!

Another one of those fantastic local producers, cooking up an absolute storm in Cornwall. We asked Baker Tom some of our nosiest questions so you can get to know him just a little better too!
