The story

Our family immigrated from Europe in 2008 to turn our vision into reality. We see a bright future for Canada, thriving in harmony with the four elements. In order to achieve this, we began at the heart, with our own family. To honour the Earth and respect her needs, we farm organically and non-GMO. The earth we care for provides us with grains and potatoes. Fire burns inside what we do , feeding from our passion, tradition, and passed-down knowledge from 7 generation. We bake natural and traditional european-style bread, all of which are fermented using a piece of inherited sourdough culture. We treasure this culture as the base for our health and essential to the health of all our customers. The bread is baked by the flame of our brick oven. By living close to Lake Huron, we have developed a deep love for the water. This admiration has led us to start our “Plastic Free Business” campaign followed by our project: Great Lakes, Let’s keep them great! We are pleased to sponsor the Coastal Conservation Center. The Air has also played an important part, by sweeping in and guiding us to take flight with our ideas and receive inspiration from above. This quilt is an example of such inspiration and came to be as it was meant to, the words tying it together. “Preserve the land and the air and the rivers for your children’s children and love it as we loved it. The earth does not belong to us, we belong to the earth” We must maintain a balance between these elements, to ensure a healthy future for the generations to come and for Canada, a place we are proud to call home. We must leave a legacy of love and honour nature, the greatest gift we’ve been given. It all starts with family. It all starts now.
