Thank you for your support in 2020
It’s been a hard year for everyone. We think we have helped make your days and months a little better with good brick oven baked bread. You have certainly give us a sense of purpose these many months by buying and sharing our bread.

We will be off for a few months and expect to begin the Community Support Bakery in April. Look for news about subscriptons in March.

The word companion literally means “with bread.” Thus, a companion is someone with whom you break bread. At Companion Breads it is our joy to create hearty brick oven baked breads for you to share with family and friends. At Companion Breads we produce a mix of naturally leavened (sourdough) and yeasted breads. All bread is baked in our wood-fired brick oven in Mahtomedi, Minnesota.

During the summer months we can be found at the Mahtomedi and Scandia Farmers Markets. After the markets, weekly bread is available by subscription through our Community Supported Bakery (CSB).

Sign up for our mailing list (below) to learn more about the CSB and receive updates about the markets and other events.
