Baking a Difference
It’s About Baking a Difference in Your Life
Our bakery is locally owned and operated. It’s no surprise that we are passionate about being genuine–in our craft, in our customer service, and in our community commitment.
There doesn’t need to be a lot of ingredients in great whole grain, whole-wheat bread. Five pure and simple ingredients are all it takes: whole-wheat flour, filtered water, fresh yeast, salt, and something sweet (like honey). In fact, we’d say bread is best when you keep it simple. It’s even better when you use the highest quality ingredients you can find.
5 Simple Things
For us, that means fresh-grinding all of our wheat in our stores. Just like fresh ground coffee beans make a better cup of coffee, fresh ground grains of wheat make a better tasting – and better for you! – loaf of bread. For the best whole-wheat taste, it’s important to rush flour from the mill to the mixing bowl. Until you taste bread that fresh, chances are you’ve never really tasted the true flavor of wheat.
As far as preservatives go, forget about it! Great Harvest breads have never been made with synthetic preservatives or artificial additives of any kind…and they never will. Thanks to our special scratch-made process, many of our breads still stay fresh for up to ten days (if you can keep your hands off them that long!)
