The baker’s skill combined with a ridiculous obsession for sourcing the finest ingredients.

Since we started Red Hen Baking Co. in 1999, we have been known primarily for our breads. We continue to focus much of our efforts on the “staff of life,” but opening our retail shop and café at Middle Ground allowed us the opportunity to expand our range into sweet treats.

Jeremy Gulley steers our pastry ship and every morning he and his team pack our pastry case with a wide range of goodies from croissants to biscotti.
Our pastries begin with simple, uncomplicated local ingredients — organic unbleached wheat flour, organic sugar, milk from Monument Farms, and a host of featured local fruits, cheeses and meats.

We're Baking Again!

Reopening Thursday.

After having to take a brief pause to keep everyone safe, we are getting back to baking. Beginning on Tuesday, January 26th., you will find our bread in stores again.

On this first day back, you won’t see baguettes, but you will find five varieties on the shelves. Over the next four days, our selection will be increasing. By the end of the week, we expect to be back to full baking capacity. Our goal is to open the cafe on Thursday. More updates to follow...

Thank you to everyone for the support over the last few days. You mean the world to us!
