Grain to bread

Whole grain with all it's goodness intact.

The grain ground into flour.

Shaped and rising loaves.

The finished product.

Organic vanilla bean in honey. It's great in tea!


Ben played with the honey bears, pretending they were soldiers, I think.
Getting paid for practicing makes it more fun!

Look at that great posture.

My little busker.

Busk: to entertain in a public venue for tips

Welcome to the Hive & Hearth. This blog will mainly be about the farm, and baking and selling at the farm market. Currently, I am selling at the Auburn Farm Market on Saturday mornings. The market is held on the West side of the courthouse square and runs from approximately 7:00am to 11:30am. Some mornings I am there earlier and I leave as soon as I sell out of bread. Last year that was around 10:00am! This year I have more competition and have been staying around until closer to 11:00. I sort of liked being the only bread and honey vendor. I am also selling at Salomon Farm Organic Farm Market on Wednesdays from 4:00pm to 7:00pm. This is an all organic market (as the name implies). It is held in the old barn at Salomon Park on Dupont Rd, Fort Wayne. I have been out of bread by 5:30 each week! If you need bread, come early or e-mail me and I will save some for you.
On July 3, I will be trying a new venue. Downtown Fort Wayne has started a market on Friday afternoon from 3:00pm to 8:00pm on Main St. I can't do Friday and then do Saturday in Auburn, but since that Saturday is the fourth of July, there will not be a market in Auburn.
