  1. Good Morning,
    I am the owner of Great Harvest Bread Co. in Cary. We are a local bakery that specializes in whole grain products from our freshly milled whole wheat flour. We have a mill on location and we use only natural ingredients.
    A customer of ours is also a customer of yours and recommended that I reach out to you. We are able to produce high volumes of quality whole grains breads at our location and we are right around the corner from your location. Our milling and baking processes also allow for significant taste and shelf life for our products so our breads transport well!
    Let me know if you are interested in our product line, I would love to meet with regarding a potential partnership.
    Currently we offer our bread to the SAS community, Koka Booth Amphitheater and we are in The Produce Box (supplied by the Raleigh Great Harvest Bread Co.)
    I look forward to hearing from you,
    Paige Williams
    Baker’s Wife and co-owner

  2. Thank you for adding buttermilk. I use it regularly for biscuits, pancakes and waffles. Below is my mental recipe for biscuits which my family regularly requests. They turn out delicious; however, there is a deft of hand that makes the difference that I have no recipe for only that it takes practice. Enjoy!

    Buttermilk Biscuits by way of Curryville Georgia

    2 cups plain flour
    ½ teaspoon salt
    1-tablespoon baking powder
    ½-teaspoon baking soda
    2-tablespoons sugar
    1/3-cup lard or vegetable shortening
    1-cup buttermilk
    2-tablespoons butter softened

    Preheat oven to 450 degrees; sift flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and sugar into a large bowl; add shortening or lard; cut into flour with fingers until mixture feels similar to coarse cornmeal; make a well in the center, add buttermilk, mix with flour by pulling in flour in a circular motion into the center until all is incorporated and mixture comes together into a ball of dough; (do this gently; add more buttermilk if needed); turn dough on to a lightly floured board and kneed gently to form a smooth ball; pat out into a rectangle approximately 10x5inches; brush top with softened butter; fold over by thirds so that buttered surface is covered; roll out to ~¼ inch thick; cut with biscuit cutter or shape with hands and place on an ungreased pan or in a large cast iron skillet; brush tops with buttermilk thinned with a tablespoon of water; puncture the top of each biscuit with a fork; bake until browned.

    Best recommended toppings: dark honey or wild blackberry jam.
