We are B&M Catering (Bev & Michael)! We make cakes, bonnag, pies and ready meals.
We’ve been trading for approximately 15 years, with a break of about 6 years in the middle.
I started with the Isle of Man Farmers Market at weekends, selling cakes and traditional Manx bonnag.
I have been working full time now since 2020, I do local markets, agricultural shows etc.
The business is also making savoury pies and ready meals, something which really took off during the first lockdown, when I baked ready meals, and Michael delivered them - it was so busy! We also supply Andreas and Sulby shops now, as well as lots of private orders, and even some private functions. We have never looked back!
There is just the two of us still, and we work from home in Andreas, which can be quite testing when very busy.
The chance to meet other producers, and our customers!
We can’t wait to see everyone!
We have no plans at present to expand the business, we are quite happy the way we are.
I bake a lot of Manx bonnag for the bigger events and they are the first things to sell out - it is a traditional recipe and I use the flour from Laxey Mill and buttermilk from IOM Creameries, delicious.
