For our regular, loyal and very patient friends who have been inquiring where to get farmersdotters bread this winter after the Penticton Farmers Market closes for the season the answer is in your freezer.
farmersdotter has decided to do a freezer bake for early to mid November. The idea being you give us your bread order then we bake it! All nice and special like. Then we deliver your fresh baked bread directly to you at a predetermined place and time. How is that? We ask you contact us before the end of the month to ensure your order can be processed.
Each loaf is $6.50. We won’t specify a minimum order however, since we will be delivering and given that our naturally leavened bread has a finite shelf life… Ever why that is? We would prefer to supply individual orders sufficient to necessitate the use of a freezer.
For this go round we ask you contact us and let us know what you would like for a bread order. We will, fast like cat, respond to finalize delivery details.
So, if you can accept delivery between Summerland to Osoyoos and desire our delicious bread for an early November delivery then please contact us through our contact page or private message us on facebook. While you’re there please like us too.
Carrying on. We offer five varieties @ $6.50 per loaf:
- Similkameen Sourdough 640g
- Olive & Rosemary 600g
- Seeded Honey Rye 600g
- Flax to the Max 600g
- Raisin & Anise 600g
Our bread freezes very well especially following a few simple steps before loading up. First, securely double bag fresh bread by sealing a new bag over the bag the bread was delivered in. Then, wrap it again in foil or freezer paper. Simple. We will be supply extra bags if you require them.
You can even slice your bread prior to freezing and simply thaw as much or as little as you need. An effective way to reinvigorate thawed whole loaf bread is to place it onto a pizza stone in a preheated 350f oven for about ten minutes. This will bring back the crust.
farmersdotter suggests consuming the bread within four to six months after freezing.
