Broadfork Bread – organic, naturally leavened, and hearth baked.
This old world style, artisan bread is hand-crafted in small batches using all organic grains.
Naturally leavened means no instant yeast is added to the dough. Instead, a starter is used (made only from organic flour and water) that has attracted natural yeasts from the surroundings. The dough rises (ferments) for 24-36 hours before baking, improving both the flavor and the digestibility of the bread.
Hearth baked means the bread is baked in an earthen, wood-fired oven.
We use only Certified Organic flours, grains, and mix-ins (such as Raisins & Seeds). We stone-grind the wheat berries and rye berries for the whole-grain flours. High quality flour makes high quality bread.
The result of this process is a deliciously flavorful bread with a crisp crust. It is fabulous plain, or goes perfectly with our vegetables and Pepper Jelly.
