Original Cornish Ginsters Pasty

Baked in Cornwall Daily

It all began with a pasty.

In 1969, dairy farmer Geoffrey Ginster, began baking Cornish pasties in an almost derelict egg packing barn in the Cornish town of Callington. He thought he would be able to bake 20,000 pasties a week. On his first day he only managed 24!

We have come a long way from our humble start but our history and bakery remain firmly rooted in Callington, Cornwall.

Baked in Cornwall

To this day, our Original Cornish Pasty is still based on Geoffrey Ginster's very first recipe.

British ingredients

What Makes a Ginsters?

It’s only 100% quality British beef and local veg, complimented by a distinctive peppery kick in our Original Cornish Pasty.

That’s what makes a Ginsters.

Quality local ingredients

Our potatoes, swedes and onions come from Jeremy at Hay Farm on the Rame Head peninsular, only 15 miles from our bakery. It’s micro climate makes this the perfect Cornish spot for growing veg.

Our Cornish heritage

Our award winning Original Cornish Pasty is the real deal and has Protected Geographical Indication to prove it! Beef, potato, swede & onion with a dash of seasoning, wrapped in pastry and made in Cornwall. Do it any other way and it simply can’t be called a Cornish Pasty.

Baked with pride by people who care

Our puff pastry has 80 layers, which is why it tastes so good. How do our bakers know when it’s ready? Simply by touch.

Our fantastic and distinctive taste

Insisting on only using quality ingredients and our unique blend of seasonings (including our famous peppery twist) is what gives Ginsters that distinctive taste.

This means we don’t need any artificial flavourings at all.
