Local Bread Builds Community
In this fast paced world where quantity overwhelms quality we want to be your village baker. We invite you to know where your bread comes from and learn about how and why we bake slow with intention. By supporting our small bakery you give us a chance to develop the finest breads using the freshest local ingredients and you in turn support a local reviving grain culture. You’re also supporting our use of local grains farmed only 30 miles from our bakery in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania. We all benefit from a reduced carbon footprint by using fresh milled local grains instead of flour from large mills and farms thousands of miles away. See our most popular selections below.
