Certificate of excellence
Owensboro Great Harvest wins unprecedent
5th "Phenomenal Bread Award"!
Dillon, Mont., April 4 2016
The bakery was one of five bakeries around the country chosen to win the award.
Great Harvest Bread Company located at 3211 Frederica Street has been serving the Owensboro community for over 14 years now. Great Harvest is the only bakery and café in the area that uses a Stone Mill to freshly grind hard, red-spring wheat for delicious, nutritious, whole wheat flour. We pride ourselves on using only natural foods, whole foods, and REAL foods when making our scratch-made breads and sweets. Only five simple ingredients are the basis for our yeast breads – Wheat flour, Honey, Water, Yeast and Salt…that’s it. No added preservatives, fats or dough conditioners. We add real ingredients like nuts, seeds, dried fruit, cheeses and herbs to make different types of breads. Owner, Greg Garrard, likes to say, “If you can’t pronounce it or spell it, you shouldn’t be eating it.”
Great HArvest Bread
We believe a Great Sandwich requires Great Bread. In early 2005, we added made to order sandwiches. Partnered with our great breads, we use only the best meats, cheeses and garnishes. This combination earned us the awards for Deli and Place to have Lunch. You can have any sandwich dressed to your tastes. We can even toast it on our Panini grill – just the way you like it.
Stop in and try one of our Classic or Signature Sandwiches. While you’re here, try a free slice of fresh bread. Check out our cookies, muffins, scones, savannah (fruit) bars, brownies and no-bake cookies. We also make homemade spreads to compliment our many varieties of grain, breakfast, sweet and savory breads.
Earlier this year, Great Harvest received the prestigious “Phenomenal Bread Award” for the fourth time including 2001, 2007 and 2012. They have also been in the finals eight years including the last five straight.
“We are thrilled to receive this recognition,” bakery owner Greg Garrard said. “For over 13 years we have enjoyed our good work in this town that blesses us daily. That’s always been what drives us – our craft, our customers and being connected to the Owensboro community.”
