Staff of Life's sourdough breads — all descended from fermented "Mother doughs," or sours, started many years ago — carry the unique imprint of Staff of Life's nearly 20-year history.
This 3-grain sourdough bread is handmade with care and skill in small batches, using non-GMO, unbromated flour and locally sourced, high-quality ingredients.
The two- to three-day process from mixing to baking allows for flavor and texture to develop during the bulk fermentation process. Chef and owner Amy Wild explains,“We let nature and time do what dough conditioners and flavor additives do for commercial bread."
In addition, the sourdough fermentation process breaks down some of the starches and gluten in the bread, making it easier for the body to digest, reducing the likelihood of blood sugar spikes compared to non-fermented breads, and increasing the bioavailability of certain nutrients.
Staff of Life breads contain absolutely no preservatives, and freeze very well. We deliver them to you frozen, which locks in the bakery-fresh flavor, texture, quality and nutrition these loaves are known for. Stock up for the month and thaw loaves as needed without compromising quality.
Located in Harrisonburg, Staff of Life Bread Company is a small, woman-owned microbakery specializing in European-inspired breads and buns with an American twist — including sourdoughs and levains, whole grains, non-GMO & unbromated flours, nuts, seeds, local ingredients, and organic options as available.
Their small-batch, artisanal breads are incomparably delicious, of the highest quality, and are some of the best loaves you will ever taste.
