Our mission is to change the food industry by bringing REAL FOOD back to our tables and we don’t feel anyone should be left out!
That’s why we make all of our Italian products free of GLUTEN, SOY, EGGS, PEANUTS and many DAIRY free as well. Our sandwich breads are made with honey so NO REFINED SUGARS either!
All of our products are hand made in small batches. From our ARTISAN BREADS to our CLASSIC ITALIAN COOKIES you will enjoy eating foods that taste just like your mom (or nonna) used to make. And best of all, you will recognize the ingredients listed on the package as REAL FOODS.
See our Ingredient page.

SO YOU CAN FINALLY ENJOY A “NORMAL” SANDWICH
and here’s why we make bread by hand:
Most of the bread, even “artisan bread,” sold nowadays is untouched by human hands. Mixed, shaped, and baked by machines, the bread is flash-frozen and warehoused before being shipped to distribution points where it is eventually warmed (“baked”) in display ovens. Modern bread factories are consistent and they produce a pretty good product, but they require huge quantities of standardized ingredients. Bread factories simply don’t have the flexibility to bake with small crop runs and local grains. Big factories, big farming.
Small local bakeries where bread is made by hand offer something else entirely. We can vary our baking quickly in response to our flours and our customers. When a farmer comes to us with a batch of fruit, for example, we can quickly make it part of your share. We can keep a close watch on the fermentation process and give it the care it requires. We can change our baking to make more of the breads that you particularly like. Hand made bread generally tastes better, and is better for our communities, than factory made bread.
There are other reasons to care about how your bread is made. We bake our bread as if we were going to eat it ourselves, and feed it to our friends and family—because that’s exactly what we do. Baking bread, good bread, is one way we try to take care of our community. It’s a great feeling to know that the pile of flour we start with in the early morning has turned into shining loaves of bread that are nourishing and pleasing our neighbors. Every week we read about another food crisis, and it’s clear that we’ve got to start making food differently. That’s what we’re trying to do.
