Island Bread Company Kneads You!

April 27, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

There’s a unique feature and treasure on Washington Island! The Island Bread Company has been making artisan breads and pastries for several years now. Boy, are they dee-lish!

Owner and chief, Heidi Gilbertson, uses fresh ground whole grains that produce an amazing texture, crustiness and taste by using a wood fired brick oven. Up until early 2012, she’s operated out of a very small facility — and because she needs more space, she’s moving to the former Clover Farm Store, now home to The Red Cup.

Heidi is in desperate need of a new wood fired brick oven (total cost is $18,000). To help finance her expansion, Heidi has joined “Kickstarter” to help get out the word. Please go to http:/www.kickstarter.com/projects/1502447120/it-takes-a-village-to-raise-an-oven-we-knead-you  to learn more about Heidi, her bread making and of course how it all fits in with our wonderful island!
