Wide Awake Bakery


I absolutely love bread. I pretty much live on carbs and bread products are one of my favorite groups of food. I also love making bread (by hand, of course... no bread machine for me). I've been making it with my family for as long as I can remember. So when I first heard about this local bakery and their breadshare, I headed to their website and immediately starting drooling over the descriptions of their breads.

Their bread is made mostly of local flour from a local flour mill, Farmer Ground Flour. It's grown in Newfield, Lansing, and Brooktondale. You can purchase a breadshare as part of a CSA (community supported agriculture) with Sweetland Farm or the Full Plate Collective, or separately. You can also choose to get more than one loaf per week, but either way it comes out to $5 a loaf/week, for 20 weeks, so $100 total. How reasonable is that for local, delicious bread (and although the bakery is not certified organic, they do use organic flours and grains)?
