Featured Producer

Red Hen Baking Company
Middlesex, Vermont

Red Hen Baking company was founded by Randy and Liza, who have grown their company to include a cafe to accompany their bakery, supported by over 40 employees! They produce premium quality breads and pastries with traditional methods and carefully selected, high quality ingredients. They strive to minimize their impact on the environment, to support the local growers and producers of their ingredients, and to provide the finest baked goods and service to their community.

We love working with Red Hen Baking Company because they prioritize souring local grains and flours in their bread, and they provide a real opportunity to help small, regional grain growers.

Red Hen Baking Company bakes and delivers their naturally-leavened bread seven days a week. Most commercial breads are made with added sweeteners, oils, and preservatives to make them soft, fluffy and chewy. The bakers at Red Hen Company can create delectable bread with only the essentials. To learn more about their process and what "naturally-leavened" means, visit their website

 

Cooking Tips

Eat This First: This week, we recommend peeling & slicing up your butternut squash and sweet potatoes. You can roast them and use them in a whole range of different recipes throughout the week!
