Holland's Pies can trace its history back to 1851 when John Whittaker started a confectionary shop in Haslingden and employed Richard Holland. In 1869, Richard was married to John's daughter Sarah and they took over the family business re-naming it Holland’s. In 1907 Baxenden was established as the home of Holland's Pies and the current bakery has been their home since 1936.
