Breadfarm: Open house June 27

Jun 3rd, 2015 | Category: Food, News

Breadfarm will be one of 40 bakeries participating in The Bread Bakers Guild of America’s 5th Annual International Bakery Open House on June 27. Located at 5766 Cains Court in Edison, Breadfarm will be highlighting local wheat and using local grains in their business.

The open house is from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Bakers will be on hand to discuss flour varieties, techniques, the future of grain, and the role Breadfarm plays. Bread tasting will be available, and visitors will see doughs (made with all local wheat) in the various stages of the baking processes.

“Currently, there is a strong surge in our country, and here in our region, to re-localize grain growing,” said Scott Mangold, owner and head baker of Breadfarm, noting the farmers and communities benefit. “The bakers, the brewers, the distillers, we all benefit from a broader palette of ingredients to ferment.”

Renée Bourgault, co-owner, said, “The response we’ve gotten for the past four years from both old and new customers is amazing. They are so appreciative of us sharing our knowledge about our craft and excited to learn more about the local wheat movement and artisan baking in general.”

Guild member bakeries in 26 US states and one Canadian province will take part in the open house, which is part of The Guild’s 2015 event series Revival: What’s Old in New. The Bread Bakers Guild of America is a non-profit organization comprised of professional bakers, farmers, millers, suppliers, educators, students, home bakers, technical experts, and bakery owners and managers who work together to support the principle and practice.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information visit www.breadfarm.com.
