COMMON LOAF BAKERY
In times gone by it was always a tradition for families to work together in small businesses, supporting their father in the work, everyone doing their part no matter how small. Because of such family commitment there was a true sense of care which was demonstrated in the quality of the product they made.'Common Loaf' bread is not ordinary bread like that made in big factories and sold through chains of big stores. It's made according to traditional recipes without compromise. The cost of materials and time involved in making these kinds of bread would be impossible but for the way of life of those of us who make this bread. Only through a life free of self regard can we sustain the long hours, only through the common life of sharing all that we possess and earn as one big family can we make this bread the way we ourselves like to eat it.
In this vein we make most of our recipes with the whole grains of Spelt and Rye. We also like to make some naturally leavened (sourdough) recipes. We feel like these choices make for a products that are nutritious and more easily digested.
It's not the cheapest bread, but the best things in life are not cheap. Love is not cheap; it involves responsibility and commitment. The reality behind this bread is that it comes from a people who are learning to love one another the way their Creator loves them and put the same care into making bread as He put into making us.
We hope you can taste the difference.
