Our Farm Organic Bakery
Our Farm Organic Bakery was a wholesale bakery exclusively for about three years before opening its doors to the public. With them, they opened up opportunities for the community to purchase freshly baked organic products using ingredients from local farms.
Their specialty is sourdough and breads made using spelt, a grain which produces a dense, tough to bake bread but with healthy properties, containing about fifty percent more protein than most wheat breads.
Their tiny shop has a quaint front area where coffee and pastries can be purchased, but it’s pretty much a walk in and out affair with only two seats at a wrought iron table.
Parmesan and leek as well as spinach and feta pastries ($3) with perfect criss-cross patterning are baked fresh each day, and are super savoury, soft, and a good way of quickly grabbing some veggies in the morning along with a little warmth.
Health even breaches a little into that notorious bastion of indulgence, the croissant, with a multigrain version for $2.50.
Director and owner and of course, baker of Our Farm Jorge Canelon deftly measures out exact portions of sticky, difficult to handle spelt dough.
He tops loaves with pumpkin or sunflower seeds, or flax seed and millet.
Loaves of organic white country bread ($5.95) are a little more rustic, used by restaurant Campo in the area.
Also made in house is their own line of soups with seven options like carrot ginger and pumpkin, which you can also grab a quick bowl of for $5.95.
Coffee is available from Balzac’s (drip $1.95 - $2.45, latte $3.25 - $4.25).
An area with kids’ snacks has a cute square of astroturf and miniature play chairs in front of it, inviting young’n’s and their parents alike to try healthier options.
Completed loaves of their signature spelt and rye sourdough go for $6.50.
Canelon doesn’t waste extra dough, forming it into cute mini loaves ($2).
They also make crunchy, sweet mini cookies perfect for coffee or tea companionship, and the almond oat chocolate chip ones are gluten free.
Get raw ingredients here too, like rolled oats ($8) from LoonSong Farm.
These guys came here from Montreal, and as such they’re making bagels in the famous Montreal style with organic ingredients for just 99 cents.
Treat this most of all like a bakery and grocer and less like a cafe, grabbing all your necessities from the fridge and sections with other organic dry goods.
