RISE Baking Co

Naturally leavened sourdough breads

Seasonal pies and other sweet treats

Why choose us?

In a world that seems so fast, breadmaking is s l o w.  It is simple, but not “easy.”  In my kitchen, the only appliance I use is an oven— all else is done by hand.  The antithesis of mass production, each loaf is attended to with care.  It is a labor of love, and I do hope you enjoy it.  If you don’t eat it all in one sitting, one loaf can last a whole week!   

“I feel extremely lucky to be eating this beautiful bread right now, it is a sensation of flavors and gorgeous texture on my tongue.  It’s going to be hard to stop eating it and go to bed. Thank you so so much💜💜💜.”
