how to get our
We do not have a storefront, rather breads may be ordered from the Online Orders page on this website. Getting your bread is easy! When you place your order you choose the pickup location that is most convenient for you---simply show up at the location during the weekly time window indicated to collect your labelled bread(s). That's it. All orders are prepaid through the website. The businesses that host our pickup locations are doing so because they believe in nurturing a healthy community---in both the physical and ethical sense. Please support these businesses with your purchases and patronage!

Baker Lori Sands has been baking, sharing and selling breads since 1981, when she made her first loaf of 'white sandwich bread' from a recipe in Joy of Cooking. The amazing alchemy of flour, water, salt and yeast became an ongoing obsession, culminating in serious study and training with reknowned bakers Stefan Senders of Wide Awake Bakery in Trumansburg NY, Jeffrey Hamelman of King Arthur Flour in VT, and Cecile Piot of Pain, Partage et Fantaisie in Mantes-la-Jolie, France.
At our bakery we know that you care about where your bread comes from, who grew the flour, and how your bread was made. Our small batch, long-fermented bakes ensure the highest quality and flavor. Local flours and grains contribute fresher flavors and aromas and also retain more nutrition in each loaf.
