Baked fresh, from the farm to your table

July 4, 2013   ·   0 Comments

Danielle and Simon Silander know a thing or two about fresh bread – and the Mono Township couple get to smell it all day long.

The Silander’s are the owners of ‘100 Acre Bakery’ and sell their wares at the Shelburne Farmer’s Market on Thursday afternoons from 3 –7 p.m.

In an effort to “simplify” their lives, and give their young children the time they need and deserve, the Silander’s quit their day jobs 12 years ago and now put everything they’ve got into their bakery – and their product reflects that.

Using local herbs, grains and flours (K2 Milling Ltd. in Beeton) the Silander’s product – breads, croissants and pastries – is baked fresh each morning. And in an average day, they sell 80 to 150 loaves. Some, especially the sour doughs and baguettes, hitting customers’ tables within an hour and a half of coming out of oven. Now that is definitely farm fresh!

The Silander family hopes to one day own a concession trailer and take their bakery on the road, but for now, visit them at the Shelburne Farmer’s Market. They’re keeping a loaf for you!
