Bread Business Blog

I am honored to present a guest post by Sara Goodwin Brown, Great Harvest Burlington, VT owner and guest blogger.

I am frequently asked by customers at the counter, "Do you still eat the bread?"  As if after all these years I would become immune to its charms.  The answer is "Yes.  Every day.  And lots of it."  My tastes have changed over time, I usually overlook the sweet breads for anything savory. Santa Fe Cornbread with melty cheese can really get my heart pumping.  However, if there is Almond Babka on the board, and I can think of any reason that I might deserve a treat, I'll cut myself a slice.

A fat slice of warm Honey Whole Wheat or Dakota is my breakfast most mornings, and I time my lunch to coincide with the arrival of Farmer's White.  There are few things in the bakery better than a hot heel of Farmer's White spread with butter.

Great Harvest brownies photoWho am I to resist the siren call of the brownies?  I have to walk past that pan dozens of times a day.  I must have a chunk (or three) every afternoon with my cup of coffee.  The brownies are my undoing.  Every year I resolve to cut back on them, and every year about this time, I give up. In fact I think I need a fudgey little chunk right now.

I'm Debbie Huber. I love great bread, nice people and authentic businesses. As a veteran employee at Great Harvest, I've met amazing small business owners and eaten a lot of whole wheat bread. I've even baked it myself, and there is not much in life that is more immediately satisfying than pulling trays of your own bread out of the oven. Except maybe watching people put butter on a steaming slice, enjoy that first bite and say "wow! Just like my grandma used to make..." or "this is whole wheat? But it tastes so good..." In my free time I enjoy exploring Montana, golfing with my family and teaching business-related classes as an adjunct faculty member at the University of Montana - Western.
