Kenneth & Katie Copp, 256 Ward Hill Road, Thorndike ME 04986, 948-9663.
We bake fresh ground wheat breads, cookies, pies, breakfast cereals, egg noodles and lots more. Our wheat is fresh ground weekly with our horse powered mill. We use natural sweeteners such as evaporated cane juice, honey, maple syrup, and/or sorghum molasses in our recipes. Instead of hydrogenated shortening we use only natural butter and coconut oil. We also offer eggs produced by our flock of free range and organically fed hens. Our wood fired oven produces a superior flavor in our breads. Special orders always welcome!
We will be at market from May through November. We also have a farm stand at our home and attend the Fairfield Farmers' Market also on Saturday.
