“I was born here, but that didn’t keep me around for long. I traveled to the literal opposite side of the country and settled in Alaska for a little while. I fell in love with it, and with bread. When it was time to come back, I knew I wanted to use my experience to bring something back home to share with my community. It was a simple idea of serving good and wholesome food in an honest, casual setting. Not many bakeries mill their own wheat. Even though the process is tough – and when the machine breaks down we need to fly in an expert to fix it – it’s all becomes worth it when we see people appreciating what we’re doing.”
