Community Supported Bread
- Join Now -
What is it exactly? It's modeled after the farmer's Community Supported Agriculture program in which loyal customers pay upfront for a weekly allocation of farm fresh vegetables. The process of paying upfront helps the farmers square away last minute necessities while also helping them to better understand and serve their customers needs. By paying in advance the customer not only receives a better cost value on their purchase but they are also guaranteed a box of delicious vegetables, meat, eggs, etc waiting for them.
Our CSB functions very much in the same way just with bread. We ask those wishing to participate to purchase a membership of four weeks. At which point you can choose to renew your membership or opt out.
What's included? For the first three weeks you will receive a standard size Long Beach Rustic Loaf (>1.5 pounds); one of our most popular sourdough loaves. For the fourth and final week you will have the option to from a selected list of offerings based on the weekends bake offerings. The membership rate is $25; a savings of $3 to $7 for the four week period. Sign-up in the store today.
Watch this video of Don Guerra from Barrio Bread in New Mexico. He recently opened up his own brick and mortar, heavily credited to the support from his CSB. Don is certainly an inspiration to us and bakers throughout the nation.
