Organically Speaking...

One question we often get is: "is this bread organic?" Without apology, we answer: "No, it isn't!" Why do we not use only organic ingredients in our products? As committed as we are to quality, you would think that getting organic cerification would be high on our list of would think. However, we are pragmatic and realists (well, sometimes) and doing the business of baking bread thousands of miles away from the nearest organic millers and wanting to produce a quality product for the masses makes for an expensive and volitile loaf. Organics are a hot-button topic right now and Kim Severson, formerly of our own Anchorage Daily News, co-wrote a great article in the NY Times addressing the very fact that 'organic' doesn't necessarily mean better...or safer!
