Demand for Heirloom & Specialty Grains is on the Rise

March 7th, 2014


Dear Valued Berlin Natural Bakery Customers,

Greetings from snowy and cold Berlin Ohio. We hope this finds you well.
With gratitude we are happy to announce that this year has been off to a banner start for Berlin Natural Bakery. As great as that sounds, it does not come without its own set of challenges.

Every word that describes our products, “Ancient grain”, “Heirloom grain”, “Non-GMO “Verified’, “small batch” from “scratch baking”, “freshly stone ground”, “ingredients you can recognize and pronounce” and the list goes on – is in high demand. Today these are all hot words in the marketplace. The demand for products that meet not just one of the criteria listed above but all of the criteria – are even hotter.

We’ve been true to the mission for over 28 years. We have refused to take short cuts and compromise the integrity of our ingredients. We know why you are purchasing our products and that nearly every person is dealing with some type of food related issue – and these days – there are far too many.

The price for commodity ingredients is determined by market pricing. The market price is driven by the demand for the ingredient. The demand for pure ancient heirloom spelt grain and pure Non-GMO ingredients is beyond what we have ever experienced. As excited as we are that consumers are finally realizing the benefits of avoiding GMOs – it is not without the burden we feel of having to deal with increased costs.

As I’m sure by now you realize that this leads to us having no option but to increase our prices. The only alternative would be to find and source lesser quality ingredients. This is not something that we can do or are willing to do. We’ve always stood by our statement “we do what’s right – even if it isn’t easy.” We will continue to do so – for as long as you continue to buy Berlin Natural Bakery.

As always, purchases over $34 are eligible for free UPS/FedEx Ground Shipping.

We truly value your business – without your support, we wouldn’t be celebrating our 28th year. What an incredible journey this has been. We consider it an honor to provide you and your family with your daily bread.

Blessings!
Joy Schrock – President

“RAISIN” THE BAR

August 5th, 2013


Dear Berlin Natural Bakery Customer,

“Raising the bar” is exactly what Berlin Natural Bakery set out to do 27 years ago when it first began. We have been consistently accomplishing that goal ever since. We purchase only one variety of German Heirloom Spelt grain. Our Heirloom Spelt grain is documented as a pure spelt grain and protected to ensure it stays that way. We bake only small batch breads and our products are Non GMO certified. Spelt requires highly skilled bakers to produce a quality loaf of spelt bread. Fortunately, we’ve got them. We are proud to use all our years of knowledge and experience to produce the finest spelt products on the market today.

For the month of August, please enjoy special savings on one of our all time favorites…RIGHTEOUS RAISIN SPELT BREAD. It’s great just toasted with butter or use it in this delicious Banana French Toast recipe….yummy!

1 cup milk 4 ounces softened cream cheese
