Here at Bent Willow we specialize in offering handcrafted batches of slow fermented, wild yeast cultured breads. Loaves are made with organic flours, water, sea salt, and a bit of magic. We believe in honoring each ingredient and the processes we use. We feel that food is at the heart of a community, so come as you are, have a seat at our table.

What is a breadshare?

A breadshare program is an easy way to ensure you have fresh bread in your home, every single week. As a member of our breadshare program, you’ll choose to receive either one, two, or three loaves of artisan bread each week or one loaf every other week. You will have the opportunity to try many different styles of breads, all made with locally-sourced ingredients of the highest quality.  Each week will include 5-6 styles of bread, with new varieties provided regularly.

Join our Breadshare 

Why support a breadshare?

Supporting local businesses is something that has always been near and dear to our hearts. We believe that consuming food can be a life altering experience and one of our key goals is to share that experience with as many people as possible. One of the best ways to do that is through a breadshare program. This weekly subscription is an opportunity for any community to support a local baker and share a common experience of consuming fresh artisan bread. If you are a resident of Macon or one of the surrounding communities and love artisan baked goods made with the highest quality ingredients, we would love for you to join our program and delight in the joys of freshly baked breads.

a bit about me

Hi! I’m Bethany, and the kitchen is my happy place. Most days you can find me in my kitchen covered in flour working on my latest creation with my three-year-old as my side kick. I have a true passion for creating food that is memorable and brings joy to people’s lives. When I’m not in the kitchen I enjoy good music, being outdoors, and getting to know the stories of those in our community.
