Most importantly, seasonal flavors are just so much more delicious.
How did Hope get started in bread-making? Struggling with digestion issues, It was only time before exploring different fermenting options for microbiome gut health led Hope to sourdough. "We are a family that loves bread and store bought bread made me feel sluggish and tired." Always learning and building her knowledge of the craft, Hope started her first Farmer's Market in Oct 2018. Sharing her passion and joy of real food and the profound positive effect of digesting hand-made sourdough bread. Hope would bake 3 loaves every cycle for a period of 12 hours each day before the market. Always learning new facets of sourdough baking, this kept Hope excited to keep learning more about the benefits of fermentation and started fermenting more sweet doughs like, cinnamon rolls and cookies.
Hope has many memories of spending hours in the kitchen, helping her Grandmother and Mother bake all sorts of baked goods. Sneaking a look in her grandmothers recipe books was the norm. Hope worked in two Australian Bakeries before moving to Arizona, USA.
Hope is passionate about food and knowing who your local farmer is. We invite you to come experience what real food is and start a conversation with us building on the connection to know where your food comes from and while supporting local.
