ABOUT THE BAKERY
At Ritchie’s Bakery, our focus is artisanal breads and pastries, handcrafted in small batches. Our sourdough breads are naturally leavened using our own starter; fermented slowly to promote flavour, nutrition, and digestibility. We use flour and grains that are organic and Canadian grown; and most flour is locally milled. When choosing sweeteners, we try to limit sugar as much as possible, substituting refined white sugar for maple syrup, dates, fruit puree or similar natural unrefined sweeteners. When available, we choose products that are in season and grown locally and buy from small, family-owned suppliers whenever possible.
Looking forward to seeing you!

"The Real Bread Campaign aims to increase the enjoyment, production and consumption of bread made with natural ingredients, appropriate fermentation and no adulterants. We think good bread should play a larger part in the physical, mental and social wellbeing of the nation. And we want to see grain and bread production at the heart of a sustainable ecological food system."
