At the Red Hen Baking Co. we are guided by the belief that pure, uncomplicated ingredients and the hands of skilled artisans are the building blocks for great food.

We craft an ever-changing lineup of pastries, sandwiches and soups for sale in our Middlesex, Vermont Café.

We’ve been on leading edge of the local food movement since 1999.
