Now in its fourth generation, the family behind Grandma Wild’s have been carrying on the tradition of baking delicious biscuits using the recipes created year ago by great-grandmother, Annie Wild.
Originally established in 1899, the bakery was located in the seaside resort town of Morecambe, Lancashire. Annie ran the bakery, boarding house and also being a full-time mum to three boys.
Eldest son John desired to return to his Yorkshire roots and away from the seasonal summer trade. In 1920, John and Annie opened a new shop in the historic village of Haworth, home of the Brontë sisters, where they began to build the heritage of Annie Wild’s unique biscuit recipes. Haworth remained the home of the family bakery until the turn of the new Millenium where the family moved to their current, purpose-built site in Steeton, West Yorkshire.
Grandma Wild’s are proud to support cocoa sustainability activities through the Cocoa Horizons Foundation. Whose purpose is to improve the livelihoods of cocoa farmers and their communities through the promotion of sustainable, entrepreneurial farming, improved productivity and community development, which protect nature and children.
Although the company has grown in size from it’s humble beginnings, the business today holds a true legacy of its founder, Grandma Wild.
