Important Updates!

3/24/21

Hello,

Happy Spring!

I will be accepting online preorders until midnight tonight for this Friday and Saturday pickups. This will be the last pickup before I start production at Water Tank Bakery, so you might want to stock up. The bread freezes beautifully. I will be shutting down production for the Month of April and possibly into May. The goal is to be open by June 1st and I will be sending out updates along the way to keep you in the loop.

Construction at the new space (11777 Water Tank Rd. Unit C.) is moving along. We are currently in the process of installing electrical and building the walk-in refridgeration. The next steps will be puttting in the sinks, work benches, water meter and a big mixer. Then we can apply for a WSDA Food Processors Permit. Thank you for sticking with me though this exciting process.

I am partnering with Garden Path Fermentation and providing providing a Za'attar Spiced Savory Whole Wheat Shortbread Cookie to accompany their beer for the Farm to Pint fundraiser for Viva Farms. More information can be foud athttps://skagitfarmtopint.com. You, the craft beer supporter and participant, can purchase a ticket, which includes the FEST GUIDE. The guide has a stamp area for each of the Skagit Breweries where you will receive a Sample Beer made with Skagit Valley Malt and a paired bite which will include a local ingredient.

Beyond that, I am really excited about all of the new products we will be able to offer from Water Tank Bakery.

This is one of them:

Pain d’epi (wheat stalk demi baguette) $4

Formed in the shape of a wheat stalk, this novelty baguette delights bread enthusiasts with its beautiful form and delivers on the hard crust and chewy crumb of a classic French style sourdough baguette. Ingredients: Type 65 bread flour, water, sourdough starter, salt  8oz. ea

I am incredibly grateful for all the community encouragement over the last year! Your support has given me the momentum and courage to go forward with this business.

Cheers~ Rachael

Hello!

Happy sunny breath-of-Spring day. Thank you everyone who came out to Gilkey Square last Friday. I really enjoyed getting the chance to chat with you all. It warms my heart to be able to create food that makes people happy. It is back to the basics; good bread and good people.

As you probably have heard, I will be opening a much bigger bakery soon! I have decided to call it:

Water Tank Bakery

located at 11777 Water Tank Rd. Unit C. Burlington WA, 98233.

Don't worry, I will be keeping the same products you know and love. I will also be providing the same pick-up options....and more. Greater production capacity opens the door to expand my offerings and availability. I am currently in the process of product development, so if you have any special requests I am all ears!

The last days for pick-up before the move will be March 26-27th. I will be closed for the month of April, as I transition to my new space.

I expect to open sometime between May 1st and June 1st. Here are some photos of the bakery construction progress and (Yes!) Water Tank Bakery will be offering sliced bread.

Thanks for your support through this exciting adventure!

Cheers~Rachael
