how does red bread make its bread and baked goods?

red bread uses only the highest quality ingredients to ensure excellent taste and nutrition in all its handcrafted breads and treats. we start with all natural organic ingredients from local california farms and cultivate wild yeast in california.  all breads and treats are 100% naturally leavened with these wild starters and allowed to ferment over time developing rich complex flavors.  fermented foods are not only delicious, but become more digestible with fermentation.  the process is as old as humanity and provides a reconnection to real food in the modern age.

pastries and cookies are rustic with an emphasis on whole nourishing ingredients, using a variety of organic flours.  our offerings feature the best from the farmers market, as well as what we have "put up in our pantry" throughout the year.  each loaf and treat is handcrafted, and baked to order.

We use a seasonally changing variety of ancient, heirloom, heritage and modern landrace grains.  We are committed to not only the incredible flavor but the increased nutrition density found in these flours.  In championing whole grains we SUPPORT a more diversified and sustainable AGRICULTURE.  We are happy to celebrate great farmers and our miller bringing us beautiful grains.
