Today is The Bread Peddler’s First Birthday! Last year we sold our first loaves at the first Wells Farmer’s Market of the season, and we haven’t stopped since! We are starting to get the hang of this baking thing: we are producing more loaves in less time (and with fewer tears), the quality of the bread is better, we have a much better sense of how to fire the brick oven and get the most heat out of it using the least wood, the mysteries of the sourdough cultures are revealing themselves slowly over time, and the pizza nights go more smoothly each week! We still have a lot to learn. The most precious thing from the past year is the fantastic group of loyal customers we have amassed: thank you so much for believing in us, for being so enthusiastic about our endeavour, for buying our products and spreading the word, and for making us feel like we are doing something worthwhile.

Our first customers, 8:55 am Sunday at the first Wells Farmer's Market. Jeff and Margaret bought one of each kind of bread! I hope they have hungry friends.
