About Us: Staff of Life Baking Company was started with one kitchen oven and a 30-year-old Kitchenaid mixer in the spring of 2006. We sold our first breads at the Broadway Farmers Market in the summer of 2006. During the winter of 2006-07, we continued to work at the craft of artisan breads. We expanded to four ovens, which we keep humming on baking days. The spring of 2007 saw us move to the Harrisonburg Farmers Market.
Farming practices and philosophy: We are a home-based business in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Our mission is to make available to the people of Rockingham County and surrounding areas, the most wholesome, flavorful and heartiest artisan breads at an affordable price.

Farming practices and philosophy: After years of baking contemporary white flour-based breads, I became enlightened to the nutritional value of whole grain-long fermentation breads. As the old grandmother’s saying goes, “The whiter the bread, the sooner you’ll be dead.” With a few years of experimenting, I have come up with these recipes. All my breads are made with 100% fresh ground whole-wheat flour. The long fermentation process results in a shelf-stable loaf with deep, complex flavors and superior nutritional value. For those watching carbs, we also offer a sprouted-grain bread and a multi-grain bread made with some sprouted grains. Sprouting the grain increases the protein content and creates a unique texture and chew. Stop by for samples!

Working with such woods as ailanthus, box elder, cherry, ebony, mahogany, poplar and walnut to name a few, anything may patiently be handcarved or handturned from its soul to become your next WoodArt gift.
