Whether you are new to the Berlin Natural Bakery family or you have been with us for sometime now, I felt it was important to talk about varying differences in our breads and where those differences come from.
Many of the differences you may see from loaf to loaf has to do with the fact that we are a small batch bakery. Each loaf of bread is baked essentially from scratch in 100 loaf batches. We do next to no processing and we use as minimal ingredients as we possibly can. This means that we don't have a bunch of extraneous ingredients to add to each batch to ensure "cookie cutter" loaves every single time.
We are very dependent on the quality of each harvest and every harvest is different depending on: yearly amount of rain, humidity, sun exposure, wind exposure and more!
Most mass-producing bread companies can make up for these variables by adding a whole variety of dough conditioners (to make the dough easy to work with), artificial colors (to ensure each loaf is the exact same color), added gluten (to make sure the bread puffs up really nice) and more.
Because of our commitment to purity, we do not use these "artificial helpers" but thankfully we have a very highly skilled baking team that is able to adjust based on the differences between each harvest of grain.
All of this means that yes, you may see differences from time to time if you order from us regularly.
What has never changed are the ingredients in each loaf, the nutritional facts, the weight of the bread AND our commitment to purity and baking real bread!
Thank you for trusting us to bake your family's daily bread. It is an honor and a privilege that we do not take lightly and we hope that even though you may experience a slight difference from time to time, that you feel confident when you consume our heirloom Spelt baked goods.
You may not know this but National Toast Day is next Thursday! As far as I'm concerned, it is just about the happiest day of the year! (kind of). If you are a self respecting toast fanatic (like myself) then I have some fantastic news for you!

We sure hope your 2021 has gotten off to a great start and that you are running with enthusiasm and hope towards any and all goals you have for yourself and your family!

"I'm so relieved to find this bread! It's so clean and delicious! The company is amazing to work with as well and the shipping is fast!!" -Christiana
"We eat a lot of avocado toast in this house, and this is the only bread that crisps up right to balance the squish of a ripe avocado. It’s alkaline, and the taste is unique, but familiar at the same time.10/10 awesome sourdough." -Noel
"This sprouted sourdough bread is delicious ! And so digestible. I do not eat gluten but this bread is the exception. Thank you for leading the Way to a GMO free food in this country!" -Viviane

Welcome to 2021, family! I hope you were able to celebrate the holidays safely and warmly and that you entered 2021 with eyes full of hope for a year of goodness and gratitude. That’s at least what we’re trying for!
I know that for many of us, the new year means changes and taking inventory of our lives and habits and trying for better.
I am happy to report that we’re not changing all that much. We’re still baking your daily bread in small batches in our little corner of the world - Berlin, Ohio. We’re still using minimal, high quality ingredients and we’re still committed to showing up for you and your families by providing you with bread and baked goods that you can feel good about!
Our Heart & Values:
All that’s staying the same, but here’s what’s changing!
Soon, you will see some updated packaging from us.
Nothing major - colors are the same but we made some small changes to help people who “aren’t in the club” YET more easily recognize the value of what we bring to the table! We put nutritional keys on the front of the bag - totally bragging on our stats, of course.
Andddddd we have actually put my name (Nicole) on the back of the bread bag after “Blessings!”
If you’ve been with us for decades, you would know that it’s been my Mom’s name (Joy) for some time now. We’re doing a small, symbolic passing of the guard and I just couldn’t be more honored to put my name on products that have been incredibly hard fought for! Plus, I am humbled by my Mom’s and everybody’s trust at the bakery who completely support this change. It absolutely is an honor and to be honest, I still can't believe it!
One other big, long awaited upcoming change is an ingredient elimination on our Biblical Spelt bread. You shared your feelings and we took them to heart and we are officially eliminating the Sprouted Soybeans from both the Sprouted Biblical Spelt bread AND the Biblical breadsticks. We’re waiting for the packaging to come in but once it’s in we’ll be saying goodbye to soybeans!
We are so excited to welcome 2021 with open arms and we hope to continue to maintain our reputation for excellence and purity. We bake for you and it's a privilege we don’t take for granted!
