Would you like to get bread and croissants every week and support local foodways? Duluth’s Best Bread is starting a community-supported agriculture program this month.

The way a CSA works is that you pay a fee up front and in turn are guaranteed bread every week — including occasional special loaves not usually offered, like challah, rye or whole wheat. All you do is come pick it up.

Fall/winter bread shares will start Nov. 9–13 and go through Valentine’s Day. (That is 14 weeks total).

The options are:

  • bread every week ($77 one pound, $112 two pound)
  • bread every other week ($38.50 one pound, $56 two pound)
  • treats every other week ($133 for six croissants or equivalent)

You can also get “treats + bread.” With your order, please specify Tuesday or Thursday pickup and east (Hunter’s Park area) or west side (near the Super One). Pickup will be from 4 to 8 p.m.

You can check out our website here, but I put some basic information below and attached a couple of photos. This will mostly be our flagship products, but we’ll throw some surprises in the mix too.

The CSA will be first come, first serve. You’ll need to respond with your order by Nov. 6 the latest.

Duluth’s Best Bread:

Each loaf is made by hand with only four ingredients: flour, salt, water, and wild yeast. It’s cold fermented and baked with high heat and high moisture for a true crust and a soft, chewy interior. The wild yeast gives it a natural tanginess and makes this a mild sourdough. 80% or more of the CSA weeks will be sourdough but occasionally they will surprise us with a special CSA-only loaf.

Duluth’s Best Bread Treats:

The croissants are super flaky, tender, and loaded with butter, just like in France. They’re also big–you won’t be hungry. Duluth’s Best Bread makes chocolate versions stuffed with organic Meadowlands chocolate, cinnamon rolls, and other special/rare goodies too.
