     Originally from Europe, he brings with him a wealth of experience and a passion for sourdough bread, fermentation, and natural products. Growing up in Europe surrounded by fresh, natural bread, he was at a loss when he saw the options after immigrating to America.  Having spent his career working in restaurants around the world, he knew that he could do better.  He began to study and experiment with sourdough and dedicated himself to the art of making the perfect loaf of sourdough bread.


     Using only the finest ingredients and traditional techniques, he carefully monitors the fermentation process to achieve that distinctive sourdough flavor and texture. He is also passionate about using natural products and ingredients, believing that they not only taste better but are better for our health and the environment.


     For us, baking is more than just a job – it's a way of life, and we take great pride in creating bread that not only tastes amazing but is also a reflection of our dedication to the craft.


     Eppy is our sourdough starter and the hardest worker in the bakery.  He was born and raised right here in Appleton, Maine.

     A sourdough starter is created by combining water and flour, in equal parts, and then leaving it to spontaneously ferment, which allows it to capture the wild yeasts that are already present in the environment.  This process makes each starter unique in its composition and specific to the location where it lives. 

     By harnessing the natural, wild yeasts in the environment, a habitat of microorganisms is created,  consisting of different bacteria and yeast. This living habitat contains enzymes capable of breaking down molecules into simpler forms, allowing the process of fermentation to begin. It is this fermentation process that produces carbon dioxide, ethyl alcohol, lactic acid, and other molecules, which push the dough and allow it to expand, rise and become more than just flour and water!



     Demetra is the Greek goddess of agriculture, harvest, and fertility. She is the daughter of Cronus and Rhea and sister of Zeus. Demetra was often associated with the earth, and her powers were said to bring forth the crops and ensure fertility of the land. Demetra is often depicted as wearing a crown made of wheat and carrying a sheaf of wheat or a torch.

     As the goddess of agriculture and fertility, Demetra was worshiped by farmers and was an important figure in ancient Greek religion. She was honored as the bringer of the harvest and the patron of the sacred mysteries.
