Great Harvest Bread

100% Delicious

All our Whole Wheat breads are made with flour we mill fresh each day, and none of our products contain High Fructose Corn Syrup.  Complete ingredient labels will allow you to check all ingredients, and we will be very pleased to answer your questions any time about what goes in to our breads. All our breads this month except Pumpernickle Rye (Molasses) are sweetened with honey.  Pumpernickel Rye is a Vegan bread with no egg wash.  Cedar River Sourdough is unsweetened entirely and is also Vegan as are our Baguettes and French bread.   Please keep giving us your input about dietary preferences so that we can make informed menu choices in the future.  Any of our breads like Dakota or High 5 Fiber that are topped with seeds or grain or flour instead of a shiny top are free of Eggs but do usually contain Honey.  Stop by any time or phone to discuss this with Dion or Laurel.  In the meantime, please check back with us here every month as we highlight new breads being introduced.  Our menu will be changing often.  The following is the September Menu.  Breads in bold below can be sliced for your sandwich.

Honey Whole Wheat

Our signature and most popular bread is a perfect blend of five pure ingredients – freshly ground, flavor-rich, 100% whole wheat flour, pure honey, filtered water, salt, and yeast.


Sunflower, pumpkin, and sesame seeds are generously kneaded into our honey whole wheat dough for a crunchy, hearty, and flavourful bread.

Cinnamon Chip

Enjoy the sweet goodness of cinnamon chips in every bite. Flour, cinnamon chips, honey, and ground cinnamon. Makes a heavenly French toast.

High 5 Fiber

Freshly ground 100% whole wheat flour, honey, flax seeds, oat bran, millet, sunflower seeds, and wheat bran.


Cheddar Garlic!

Big melting chunks of Extra Sharp Cheddar throughout this fluffy, savory white bread make it a taste treat and ultimate comfort food Fridays this month.  We will make some hamburger buns and would be happy to set aside an eight pack or two for you if you want to be sure of getting them.  These make delicious breakfast sandwiches too!

Crown Challah with Raisin

We will make several very special batches of Challah in September for Rosh Hashana (9/17 & 9/19) and for Yom Kippur to break the fast 9/28!!   Our Challah recipe comes from a New  York bakery that makes many kinds of Challah every day.  We stick to our one type most weeks but make it every Thursday with and without sesame seeds.  This year Dion will be glazing the Crown Challah with a honey glaze for extra sweetness for the New Year.  Shanah tovah um'tukah!

Asiago Pesto Swirl

Although we won't be at the Downtown Farmers Market this year, we are bringing back Asiago Pesto Swirl bread on Market Saturdays by tradition.  We'll be back at the market next year as soon as they allow us! Meanwhile, this dough is flavored with onion and garlic and Asiago cheese and is swirled with a delicious pesto.  Enjoy a loaf on a Market Saturday (first and third of the month June-September) or order ahead for some Asiago Allium Hamburger buns.  These just can't be beat especially for pulled pork or any other of your summer grilled delicacies.  We can make them as Brat Buns as well.  Just call by Friday and order!

3 Olive Swirl

Once a month on the third Tuesday every month, we make this gorgeous savory loaf absolutely overflowing with green, kalamata, and black olives and Parmesan cheese.  If you like olives, do not miss this!  We make low carb bread on the same Tuesday, so don't be confused.  The 3 Olive Swirl is definitely NOT low carb!  :)
