Please come join our vibrant group of volunteers and get involved in your community! Please ask me if you have any questions.

Dear Bakery Customers,

December is its usual wacky self again this year! Starting out snowy and icy, our temperature rose up into the mid 70's this past week which had some of us in shorts and flip flops again. This weekend we were back in our winter jackets!

So much of baking depends on the barometric pressure! Ray's local weather report is great!

With the thermometer all over the place we struggled to bake on Friday. Our yeast breads were rising too quickly. We had a mad scramble to get the whole wheat breads into the oven before over proofing. We were  frantic for a while-- but we did it.

Mr. Fatty Pants is looking smug after stealing some seeds from the bird feeder in front of the bakery window. They are back- those rambunctious rodents who perform the most stunning of stunts outside our bakeshop window....think of it as squirrel tv!

December Schedule

  • Let me know if I can help you with your holiday gatherings, business parties, special meals for family and friends- sweet or savory, we can bake it!
  • Christmas Orders: Get your Christmas-specific orders in by Tuesday the 15thIf you need to pick up after Friday 20th, specify Monday or Tuesday (the 23rd and 24th) and time in the order comment section.
  • Most of our bake shop items freeze very well. Except for the fruit pies everything keeps well when double wrapped and frozen. Defrosted over night or at room temperature and refreshed in the oven, they are great.
  • We will not be baking for Friday the 27th. I will send out a blog on Sunday, the 29th for the following Friday, Jan 3rd.


Bakery Gifts

The Montford Walk-In Bakery products makes great gifts for teacher, employee, friend or hostess. We can provide a festive bag and add a ribbon for gift giving- please let us know. Perhaps a gift certificate might be a good choice.
