Tan Y Castell Bakery is the creation of Paul and Linda Mear. Paul started producing our famous Welshcakes at the family farm using an old Aga and then selling them to local shops around his farm.
Once Paul had enough capital, the couple then moved the business into an old cottage and set up a kitchen to meet demand as they were now selling to guest houses, cafes, restaurants and hotels. Again, demand began to outstrip supply and space was becoming increasingly limited. Paul found a unit in Narberth in a small business park not far from where he was living.
During this time Paul was covering two jobs, one lecturing at a local college, the other making Welshcakes to the early hours of the morning.
A local supermarket became interested and asked Paul to supply some stores in Wales.
