Hawk Hill Micro Bakery provides local West County residents with a weekly bread share and other seasonal baked goods.
About the bread: In the evolutionary history of bread baking is the simultaneous presence of the human hand and heart. Fermentation has always been seen as magic or a spiritual occurrence. I always have this awareness in my process. Almost all my breads are sourdough or naturally leavened. I also try to use local grain if possible — lately it has been red fife wheat from Stewart on Occidental Road. I start by mixing all the doughs by hand, with high hydration and long fermentation (up to 48 hours) for the best possible bread for digestion and flavor.
Bake day is every Friday! Here are the baking/pickup dates:
Pickup sites are here (at Hawk Hill) or seasonally, a pickup at the Occidental Farmers Market. You can also find Hawk Hill bread at Green Valley Farm and Mill CSA. Bread is $9 per loaf (1 kilo), and if you pay for 4 pickups (loaves) in advance, it is $35. I change the variety of bread and will usually announce it on Instagram or Facebook. Here are some examples of bread I might bake on any given week.
To get on the list for the week you want bread, please message or email me by the Wednesday night of the bake week to place an order. Pay when you pick up — cash is preferred. You also have the option to order online and pay in advance.
We occasionally plan and host events. The best way to learn about them is to visit and follow us on Instagram and Facebook for updates and announcements. We look forward to seeing you!
