Since 2006

Well I was brought up with a really horrible childhood and was becoming a bad person . I saw an ad in the news paper on volunteering at a church and learning how to bake . So I volunteered for a year learning and never looked back . When I smell sourdough bread I always remember the first time I tasted real bread . If it wasn't for bread I would be dead or in jail . I owe my life to sourdough.

Characteristics

It's really the base of most of the bread I do . Her name is Betsy I made her 10 years ago with Apple cider flour honey and water . She come a long way and I love her . When she gets low I always talk to her and feed her slowly making sure she know she is loved . The bread she produces is such a unique and great flavour and the crust on her baguettes are what really made me keep her alive .
