Bread Box is a community supported bakery in downtown Perkasie PA. Ryman Maxwell and team use Castle Valley Mill (another Bodhi Market vendor) for their bread flour. The stone-ground process preserves the flavor, nutrition and texture creating a better tasting, more nutritious product. Most industrial mills sift out the natural vitamins and nutrition of the grains and then fortify the flour. Castle Valley sources GMO-free grains, and those that are grown locally. Castle Valley does not use any preservatives or chemicals during the milling process.
Bread Box uses an overnight fermentation, giving their breads time to develop. They use methods, both ancient and new, which treat the ingredients with respect and develop their full potential, both in flavor and in nutrition. They then shape, weigh and roll each bread by hand. Bread Box also supports local farmers. They believe that food grown in the region tastes superior and is healthier. Whenever possible, they incorporate local fruits, honey and dairy into their bread and pastries.
