What is a Community Supported Bakery?
A Community Supported Bakery (CSB) is a locally based investment system. Neighboring community members invest in our bakery in exchange for fresh baked goods through a subscription program. This investment helps us with startup capitol in order to get our business off the ground and our doors open. In return you get access to fresh baked goods on a weekly or bi weekly bases.
Why do we need CSB support?
Our building was built in 1940 with the last major renovation in 1980. All of our electrical, plumbing, and HVAC is seriously out dated and not up to code or regulations and needs to be removed completely. The interior has to be completely demolished and open up to accommodate a bakery. Windows, floors, ceilings, walls, lighting, and light fixtures all need to be replaced. Our air conditioner and heater both need to be replaced as well as a ventilation system needs to be installed including a industrial hood and fire system. Basically we are starting from scratch just on the building in order to get it up to code so we can become a bakery.
What we have invested
Moving from a small home kitchen to a full blown store front comes at a hefty price tag. The purchase of the building as well as investing in upgrading all of our equipment to commercial grade was budgeted in our business plan but the additional unexpected cost to have to "start over" on the building has well surpassed our expectations two folds.. We are doing all of the demolition and renovations with our own hands while perfecting our baked goods in order to bring the best products to our wonderful small town.

How it Works
We have created a tier program where you decide how much you want to help and what baked goods you would like to receive. Every week I will bake up a fresh batch of bread and package your order to be picked up on a designated day that week at our shop. You can choose from 1, 3, 6, and 12 month subscriptions. All payments must be made prior to baking day in order to receive your baked goods that week. Don't worry if you are not available on certain weeks. You can notify us before baking day and we will send you a coupon for another week or to double up on a special week. You can also share your week with Friends and family so they can enjoy fresh baked bread as well!
