Water Tank Bakery creates wholesome bread, cookies, and more. Bread is the cornerstone of the bakery’s offerings, making bread the slow way with long fermentation, sourdough levain, and locally sourced ingredients. This slow process ensures the development of maximum flavor complexity, consistency, and exeptional eating experience.
All products are baked exclusively with NW grown grains, milled at Cairnspring Mills (right next door on Water Tank Road). These flours are stone ground and used fresh (to retain much of the wheat's natural oils, fats, and vitamins). By taking advantage of produce and other ingredients available from local hard-working farmers and millers, Water Tank Bakery creates food that tastes of the unique abundance of the Skagit Valley.
