Whole Wheat Local Loaf

Crooked Tree Breadworks founder Greg Carpenter decided to create a loaf of bread starting from seed. With the help of local farmer Jonathan Scheel and Scheel Family Farm, Crooked Tree Breadworks was able to grow a small crop of our own Hard Red Winter Wheat.

This is an unapologetically elemental 100% Whole Wheat loaf made from nothing but our winter wheat, well water and a pinch of salt. It is leavened with the sourdough culture that we have nurtured on the shore of Little Traverse Bay since we opened in 1996. It would be hard to find a loaf that is more authentically local!

We mill the flour fresh for every batch, preserving it’s sweetness. This loaf is what wheat is all about.
