Eat Square is a recently started (2014) rural venture making carefully crafted pies and pastries using the best local ingredients.
Founded by Alex Joll who got his passion for pies from his grandmother. She taught Alex to make pastry at an early age and he never forgot.
When you eat a pie from Eat Square you can be sure of great flavour. The pastry is Alex's granny's own recipe. The fillings are traditional and tasty. And the ingredients are from farms and sources we know and trust – such as our friend Adam, who rears Gloucester Old Spot pigs in a local village.
The story so far...
We currently sell at markets and in a number of shops, pubs and restaurants across Wiltshire. We have tested our recipes and pies extensively and are always trying to make them even better.
The pastry of a pie is crucial. We didn’t want to go down the fluff-and-nonsense mass-produced road so we stuck to granny's own short-crust pastry. It's rich, it’s nicely flaky – and people love it!
We source our meat locally and know some of the farmers personally. This is really important to us as we feel this sets us apart from the big pie companies (and makes our pies taste a whole lot better). We add new types of pie on a regular basis.
This February we successfully ran a crowd funding event and raised over £2,500. You can see details of this below. This money helped us buy a pie press and move in to new premises.
With our new kitchen at Woolley Grange Farm, just outside Bradford-on-Avon in Wiltshire, we are able to make many thousands of pies all by hand and supply a growing area. This now includes online ordering as well as a growing number of outlets selling our pies hot and ready to eat.
Local Through and Through
We are a Wiltshire company and try to get all of our key ingredients from Wiltshire, and preferably within just a few miles. We use a local farm butcher, Church Farm in Broughton Gifford, for our meats. The beef is their own and the pork comes from just down the road in Box.
Eat Square also likes to get involved in the local community. You will see us at local events, clubs and fairs. Follow us on Facebook to keep up to date with where we are and what we are doing.
Eat Square are proud to have the highest possible food hygiene rating for our kitchen.
