Check out these behind the scenes shots taken at McKenzie's Cuminestown bakery, where our famous biscuits and oatcakes have been baked since 1981!
Gerry has a huge stock of jokes in his "little black book". Some are even fit for public airing, like this one:
Oatcakes have been a staple of the Scottish diet since at least Roman times and probably long before.
The current owner of McKenzie's is Gerry, whose father, Alexander (Alec), took over the existing bakery business on the Turriff premises in 1952.
It's extraordinary to think that when Alexander McKenzie founded McKenzie Bakers over half a century ago in 1952, sugar and confectionery were still rationed in Scotland following the second world war. So for the good citizens of Turriff in the heart of rural Aberdeenshire, the prospect of sticky buns, cakes and biscuits must have been truly mouthwatering!
Any visit to Turriff would not be complete without dropping in to our bakery on Main Street. Here you can choose from our famous oatcakes, biscuits and other bakery products. A real Turriff institution!
