From time to time we have customers ask us what our hours are and when they can stop in to purchase products. Please understand that our hours always vary depending on our baking load, and once we are done for the day/week, we do not keep office hours. Our hours are especially limited from now until mid-February, or even a little beyond that. If you need a product, please call, email, or fb message us and we will do our best to reply and let you know a time for pick up. It is always helpful if we know what you want so we can have it ready for you for a quick pick up.
