We are doing everything in our power to make your bread in a safe and sanitary environment, being vigilant with wiping down, and washing every surface on a regular basis.  This is something we have already been doing as a safe food handling practice, but we are being extra vigilant in these times.
As most of you know I am the only one who does the baking, and I keep my hair tied back, and wear a scrub hat to keep the little wisps away from my dough, bread, pastries (products, etc).  I have also started wearing a mask just as an extra measure.  I have no signs or symptoms of any illness, no cold, sore throat, sneezing, fever, etc)
As you are aware we have moved to a more environmentally friendly packaging, we may have to temporarily go back to the plastic packaging to meet the requirements of the Helth authority, we will keep you updated should that have to happen.
Should you have any concerns please feel free to contact me.

As we fall back into the routines of school, and regular activities.  We also are surrounded by all the signs & coming signs of Fall.  The cooler evenings, the briskness in the air.  Which brings thoughts of the coming harvests.  We are saying goodbye to the last of the summer harvest to begin the fall harvests.  We too in the bakery, look at what we are offering and like to offer some seasonal offerings.
We introduced our sandwich thins/rolls this week.  In our popular Homestyle white, Sugar Cane - a whole wheat one, and our 12-grain version. These are great for so many things.  My oldest likes to make one into a breakfast sandwich to take with him on his way to high school (teenagers!), my two grade school littles enjoy using them for their lunch time sandwiches.  I like to split one open and slather on a bit of fresh butter & local jam.   Mmmm-good!  My hubby can be found just nabbing one on his way out the door, and eats them plain (each to their own).  My littlest munchkin like hers split, filled with grated cheese & then put on the panini press, she can also be found coving it with jam & whip cream, or other sandwich fillings.
In the coming weeks we will be bringing back our Harvest Struan, a lovely multigrain bread made with local grains.  An old Scottish traditional fall Harvest bread with a Maritime twist.
We are also working on some other sweet treats getting ready for Thanksgiving and (dare I say it) Christmas.  Right now, our house is still busy with the Back to School however we always have one foot pointing forward looking at what's the coming season will bring.
We look forward to seeing you at the Halifax Seaport Farmers Market soon.

Oh Canada! Glad to be Home, Feeling Inspired & Green

Well a couple weeks in France was wonderful!  Most of the days were spent in central Paris visiting local Boulangeries.  Seeing lots of great breads & Pastries!  I have lots of new ideas to try out & play around with.  I can't wait to share some of my new ideas with you all.

The trip also gave me a great chance to think about what kinds of things I want to do with my business.  As my business is a reflection of who I am, I want to be able to offer the things that I would like to see available.  This means locally made products.  Locally produced ingredients where possible.  Green packaging options.  Reusable packaging option where possible.

We are going to be changing our labeling a little bit to allow for bilingual labeling.  This change in labelling will allow labels to be potentially reused.  We will be removing our ingredient lists from the label, however we have always prided ourselves on our transparency when it comes to the ingredients included in our breads, and will still continue to make those ingredients lists available to you.  We will always have a "binder" at the market with the lists.  We are also going to be transitioning our website here, so that you will be able to get the ingredient list, simply by clicking on the appropriate recipe in the sub menus of the Menu.

We will be also make a transition into some reusable packaging options.  I am hoping to work with a local seamstress to create reusable cloth bags for the breads.  We will eventually be phasing these bags into use, these bags will have a slight additional upfront deposits, however as we intend for them to be reusable, you will only have to pay a "initial" bag fee/deposit, then you will have the option to reuse or exchange your bag each week (or whenever you are buying our bread).  Should you wish to return the bag, we will be happy to refund your "deposit".  We will still keep a small supply of plastic bags for those who prefer to continue using the plastic bag, however we will be introducing a small plastic bag fee for the plastic bags.
