Supporting local artisan bakers and bread share programs is something that has always been near and dear to our hearts at the Artisan Bread Classes. We believe that consuming food can be a life altering experience and one of our key goals is to share that experience with as many people as possible. As a part of our Artisan Bread classes and camp, we seek to empower our baking students with the tools they need in order to create their own businesses around their artisan craft. One of the best ways to do that is through what is known as a Community Supported Bakery program. A CSB is an opportunity for any community to support a local bakery and share a common experience of consuming fresh artisan bread. As bakers ourselves, we want to lead by example through a Community Supported Bakery program for Louisville, KY. If you are a resident of Louisville and love artisan breads made with the highest quality ingredients, we would love for you to join our CSB and share in the joys of freshly baked breads.
What is a
Community Supported Bakery?
A Community Supported Bakery provides you with the opportunity to try many different styles of breads, all made with locally-sourced ingredients of the highest quality. For $7 a loaf ($126 total), each week we will bake you a loaf of our amazing artisan bread using our signature Kentucky Proud, Louismill products. All of our bakery loaves will be made using a slow fermentation, which gives the bread improved digestibility and nutritional content. These loaves will showcase a variety of flavors and wheats including rye, kamut, and our Turkey Red Heritage wheat. Each loaf with be approximately one-and-a-half pounds. If you are interested in seeing more of our Louismill breads and flours, please visit the Louismill website.
If you are afraid that you will be out of town, you can designate a pickup person. You can even designate a neighbor and surprise them with fresh bread.
The cost of the Community Supported Bakery differs throughout the year depending on the length of the share. However, the price always comes out to be $7 for each loaf of bread. In order to secure your place, please click the link below and place your order through our online store.
