BARN OWL BAKERY

Your summer Barn Owl Bakery booth awaits in the village, Saturday 5/17 from 10-2…

Hello Friday night! A big ole moon is rising through the trees and I want to watch it a bit more so I am going to push through the tasks in front of this less than celestial glow…Also, we already e-mailed you this week! We don’t want to overdo it. We are thinking one e-mail on Monday to let you know the line-up for Wednesday and Saturday that week? Thoughts? Okay, back to the moon for a quick minute though…having lived at Midnight’s Farm now for going on eight years Read more

Oh yes! Fresh Breads and Pastries Wednesday at Midnight’s Farm 9-2

Oh hey dears. Gosh. The rains are here, that’s a relief and not without worry that it won’t be enough, but grateful that the cycles we need persist. Sing the songs and give the offerings and drive less and keep our circle of impact local, we sort of try our best to make these connections, for whatever it is worth. The seeds are in the ground just in time, grain will be doing its ancient grain thing and at our scale our bodies get to follow ancient planting patterns and Read more

Barn Owl’s Farmstand – Open for business! – Wednesday 5/8 – 9am til 2pm – Fresh Breads and Pastries

Hello lovely bread folks out there in bread land, Nathan here! We’re coming into May all fired up and running around the island, planting grains, picking up fresh milled flour from Steve, dropping of seed for the farmers, hustling like crazy to keep our little local grain economy flourishing. Then we mix in long days at the Grayling working on the new bakery space, watching our new home emerge out of the old shell of this crazy old building, and the many many trips to Sunset hardware. All the while Read more

May Day breads and pastries at Midnight’s Farm 9-2

Happy May Day, an interesting kind of seasonal confluence of the infinite energy of the sun, growth, fertility  of the earth and the needs for limits, rest, respect of the worker. As a business we grow and thrive and as a business we hope to re-balance and support all that makes our growth possible…like the plants do! Flower crowns, dancing, and political theory…it’s our kind of day! Let’s hope, for the plants and our garden labor and grain growing… that this morning frost subsides now that we’re out of April Read more

Farm Stand! All Organic Fresh Breads and Pastries at Midnight’s Farm Wednesday 4/17 , 9am to 2pm

Here we are, popping up like another delightful spring flower to offer your weekly worldclass island grown breads and pastries. Come by tomorrow and find your favorite treats and staples made with whole grains, island fruit, organic butter, wild leaven. We feel maybe a little over the top telling the full story of our baked goods in every email and post, and maybe you also gloss over the extra verbage. Often we can’t even get in all the details that make this food matter to us. We keep at it Read more

Hello all, We have bread and pastries slowly rising, ready to be baked bright and early for tomorrow’s Bakery Farmstand Open House (okay, we aren’t totally sure what to call it still, but we’re open for you to buy fresh yummy baked goods, does it really need a name?)

Come eat well and stock up at the Grange Market Saturday 3/23 from 10-2

Hello and Happy Spring! I think we have welcomed the return of the chorus frogs with this newsletter six times now. Somehow I just can’t let the season start without sharing it with our community, who has been falling asleep to the same sounds of Spring. We also saw our first newt of the season, crossing a road, but we stopped in time and got the dear one out of the way. We Brake For Newts! All of us in the bakery are having such a fun time putting together Read more
