Breadsmith Bread Is Available

In the bakery, curbside, or home delivery. There are a number of options for getting Breadsmith Breads.

First, each of our three bakery locations are open. We have social distancing measures, extra cleaning procedures and we are following the best strategies for minimizing risk.

We ask that each of our customers do the same. Stay at home if you are not feeling well. Take appropriate measures when visiting our bakery. As an essential business, we want to continue to stay open, providing you with healthy, tasty and traditional breads and sweets.

You can also call in an order. We'll bring it out to you curbside. Just allow for a bit of time between your order and arrival so we can slice, pack and process your order. Menus are available for each location.

Breadsmith breads are also available through select grocery store locations. Lakewinds Co-ops, Jerry's Foods and County Market. Each of these use Instacart to take orders and delivery goods to your doorstep. They carry key items, so there are fewer items to choose from, but it is still made fresh and local.

We're Open -- Ready to Serve

We will remain open to serve the daily food needs of our community. We are still open into the early evening, but have curtailed our hours a bit so we can do additional procedures and preparations. We are committed to safe practices in our stores—including social distancing. We have set up line cues with spacing recommendations so each customer can still get their bread items. This may mean that, at times, you will need to wait just outside the bakery to maintain proper distance between customers.

Thank you for your understanding during this unprecedented time.

Honey is Sweet

There are many ways to sweeten baked items, the natural choice of honey is among the best. Honey is a complex sweetener—made up of sweet components and nutrients. Many other options are just comprised of the sweet component. Honey's complexity provides benefits. Our body processes and absorbs it slower than other sweeteners. This extends the boost of energy we get from eating, while reducing the spike in blood sugars. Honey also contains vitamins and minerals. Refined sugar doesn't.

Of course, we've likely all enjoyed a bit of honey with a hot tea to help us overcome a sore throat or cold. More than good advice from grandma, the results of research suggest that there is more than loving advice behind the use of honey. Honey helps fight what ails us, reducing discomfort.

And many have heard about honey being a natural way to develop defenses against allergies. The thought being similar to how allergy shot help us develop less sensitivity. Enjoying honey means you're enjoying a bit of the local pollen which leads to being less sensitive to the effects of pollen as an allergen. It sounds like a beautiful and reasonable solution. Too complex to prove, but fun to enjoy discussing while adding a bit of honey to a spot of tea, a slice of bread or as a drizzle over ice cream or a cookie.

Honey is less refined than refined sugar. Honey is more natural than options being developed by food scientists. And our honey is locally made, by the bees of the area—Sweet!
