By 1985 a new oven was needed. Oven Mason, Andre LeFort was brought over from Paris to create a unique oven, complete with Iron cast from forges that Andre’s family had worked with for five generations. A book on organic, whole grain baking was written and published (Bread Alone, William Morrow) , introducing thousands of people to the simple joys of baking bread at home as well as to the story of the building of the bakery.
Bread Alone expanded in 1988 to include a café and a pastry room. Bread Alone Woodstock Cafe opened in 1994 and Bread Alone Rhinebeck opened in 1998, expanding our community meeting place to both sides of the Hudson River.
Bread Alone Bakery currently bakes both organic whole grain breads and all natural, hand made pastries in its main bakery. With three café’s in the Hudson Valley, many loaves of bread are enjoyed and many healthy meals are served. We invite you to join us every day! See “Where to Buy” for a comprehensive listing of where you can find us.
