We’re an artisan bakery and little sister to The Early Bird in Cardiff. Our newest home in Barry will be a great place for you to stop by and get your hands on some of our gorgeous hand made bakes.

We’ve been looking forward to The Goods Shed opening ever since we first heard about it in 2018. By the time we were approached about the container village The Early Bird had outgrown it’s nest a bit and we were looking for a new bakery space that would let us keep up with demand, run workshops and expand our range of goodies. So in 2019 we opened Friends in Knead, a stones through from the Bird, and laid the path for our expansion to The Goods Shed in sunny Barrybados. We’re very very excited to be part of such an amazing development and look forward to welcoming you when we open!

We specialise in bakes made using the best local, seasonal produce. We’ve got a crack team of bakers in Cardiff producing some absolutely gorgeous treats for The Goods Shed. Our doughnuts are a bit famous and we made a mean sourdough too! You’ll also be able to stock up on some lovely Welsh pantry goods too at our deli side too.
