A fresh baked loaf and a bag to keep it in…


fresh baked bread


Look at that amazing loaf of bread peeking out of that bread bag!  Farm to Hearth is a new bakery in Haddam and they make the most delicious bread and I’m not exaggerating one bit.   All their bread is made by hand, no machines. They’re open Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday from 4pm until 7pm or until they sell out of.  The loaves come out of the oven about every half an hour, I’ve been there twice and the focaccia and country bread that I bought were still warm with a wonderful crust on the outside and moist and delicious on the inside!

These are big loaves and knowing that they are destined to become a staple I decided to make a fabric bread bag to keep them in.  I’ve read many times this is the best way to keep your bread fresh.  So off to Pinterest I went to find a pattern.  Ecab which stands for Eighteenth Century Agrarian Business has a wonderful tutorial on their blog for a linen bread bag that was easy to follow and really good looking, click here to see it.

I am out of linen so decided to use some Osnaburg cotton and some cotton twill tape for the draw string.  It took me a little over a half an hour to make and that’s with French seams!  This would make a lovely gift, filled with a loaf of bread of course, with some gourmet cheese and a good bottle of wine.

look at those ingredients :)

I love Farm to Hearths label and their little store is delightful. They also have a beautiful website with more information on the ingredients, baking process and where you can find their breads being sold.  If you’re the area stop by, you won’t be dissappointed.

And by the way, I’m not being compensated to rave about Farm to Hearth, I’m just so happy I found them I want to shout it from the roof tops!

  1. wow!!! That looks amazing…what a great idea. I love that their hours – I am sure that they must be forced to close early a lot!!

  2. Looks like a fabulous place! and I have family out that way that I’ll have to tell about it!

    I love homebaked bread…and whenever I make it myself I usually just wrap it in a kitchen towel. Your bag is such a great idea! Definitely have to try it!

  3. I don’t know which looks better that bread or your bread bag. Nice job on the bread bag.

  4. Carrie @ poet in the pantry says:

    There’s nothing like a loaf of freshly baked bread! I love the bread bag! I wish I had the talent to pull that off–where to put the loaf is always an issue for us!

  5. I love everything about this post! The bag is beautiful, does it seem to keep the bread fresher than other methods? I love the whole philosophy of the bakery. It’s just how I imagine business and the entire food infrastructure of this country used to be…good, fresh, wholesome and local food until they were sold out! :)

    • Good morning Laura, yes, the bread was fresh (of course it didn’t last very long!) I try to buy local as much as I can and I think it tastes way better that way :)

  6. Love your site, Jayne…and love these little bread bags too! Bet these would be great for storing other goodies too – like coffee, tea or even a wine bottle sized bag. Love it!
