About Our Bread

Quality handmade bread

Bread Poets sells high quality handmade bread with a great shelf life! Each loaf of bread is finished by hand, the old-fashioned way, for a truly unique bread experience.  All breads that are not sold are donated to local charities throughout the Bismarck/Mandan community. 

Quality and simplicity is our secret

Shhhhhhhhhh...actually, there is no secret at all! We use the finest and freshest quality ingredients in all of our products. Our basic breads contain no oils. We mainly use wheat, water, yeast, milk, butter, salt and a sweetener (either honey and/or corn syrup).

Stone ground wheat

We grind our own wheat in our own Stone Burr Mill. This process ensures the absolute freshest product possible. We use only high protein northern great plains wheat. We think you'll taste the difference! 

USDA Food Guide Pyramid

The USDA recommends 6-11 servings per day from the bread/cereal group as part of a total diet. Since our bread is so heavy and dense, slice for slice you are actually getting those servings twice as fast. We are proud to offer such a high quality product that is so important in a balanced diet. So proud in fact that, you can see the pyramid is the center of our logo.

An affordable luxury

We are committed to making a premium product and selling it at a fair price. We mill our own flour and hand-knead our bread. While this process results in higher labor, it also results in a much higher quality product; product that we are very proud of. Truth is, we wouldn't have it any other way. Pound for pound, we feel you'll find our bread is priced competitively with breads of a lesser quality.
