Your Neighborhood Bakery
Hi, we are Bernie and Dee, owners of the Great Harvest Bread Company in Raleigh, North Carolina. We have been in the bakery business for over 15 years, having opened our first Great Harvest in 1998 in Lansing, Michigan. In 2006, we decided to sell our Lansing bakery and move to Raleigh. We've been proud owners/operators of the Raleigh Great Harvest ever since. We are so excited to provide you with the freshest baked breads, scones, cookies, muffins and more! Stop in our bakery and try a free slice of bread. We hope to see you soon!
Pure & Simple Origins
For more than 30 years, whole grains have been the center of Great Harvest's commitment to healthy living. The essence of our company hasn't changed since our founders discovered the wonder of Montana wheat and opened the first Great Harvest Bread Co. in Great Falls in 1976. Loyal customers raved about the unusually fresh and rich taste of such simple, from-scratch bread baked with pure ingredients from nature: freshly ground whole wheat flour, water, yeast, salt and honey.
You Can Pronounce Every Ingredient
If you cannot pronounce what you are putting in your body, should you eat it? We don't think so! Great Harvest features whole grain breads handcrafted using five simple ingredients - fresh-ground whole wheat flour, water, honey, yeast and salt .You'll never find words like ethoxylated diglycerides, ammonium phosphate, sodium stearoyl lactylate or alpha amylase in our products. Commercial manufacturers use additives to preserve and stabilize their breads.We believe handcrafted, hot-out-of-the-oven bread should be enjoyed while it's fresh - and our bread stays fresh for up to ten days when stored properly.
Health Enhancing Whole Grains
Great Harvest bread is renowned for its amazing taste and healthful qualities. Our whole grain breads, made with daily ground, high-protein Montana wheat, are fundamental to a good diet and active lifestyle. In fact, the USDA Dietary Guidelines recommend that we eat three servings of whole grains every day. That's found in just two slices of any Great Harvest whole grain bread.
Fresh Ground Whole Wheat is Our Hallmark
Our wheat is ground daily to ensure the freshness and flavor that Great Harvest's reputation is built on. It's the freshest ground flour that gives Great Harvest bread its unsurpassed taste, nutrients and density. Our bread is not light and airy like commercially produced breads and you'll never find preservatives, additives or dough conditioners in our loaves.
We Support Family Owned Farms
Our whole wheat comes from the best source on earth; family farms in Montana's Golden Triangle; where perfect growing conditions, coupled with decades of farming tradition, produce an exceptional crop. There's nothing mass-produced about our whole wheat breads. We know where every kernel comes from, and we like knowing that we are supporting farms that have been producing the finest wheat for generations.
Authentic, Local & Community Focused
Word spread, and others soon wanted to share in the bakery venture, bringing the taste of handcrafted, whole grain bread to their own communities. Great Harvest Bread Co. has grown to more than 200 local owned and operated bakeries. The original small-town spirit of generosity and being genuine still leavens every Great Harvest bakery.
