Welcome to Clumsy Crow Baking

The Palouse region of eastern Washington has some of the most prolific farmland in the world, yet almost all its wheat is shipped overseas. Clumsy Crow Baking turns a variety of local grains into artisan breads, hand-shaped bagels and soft German pretzels.
The breads are naturally leavened, fermented overnight and baked in a tiled oven for a great flavor and crust. The bagels are hand-rolled, boiled and baked on the hearth. The pretzels are authentic and, to judge from repeated observation, a thrill to eat.
I’m currently selling through occasional farmers markets and popups and by subscription. Based on the Community Supported Baking model, subscriptions give customers a loaf a week for five weeks. Warm loaves are ready in the morning or evening. Cost is $30, due on first pickup.
The best way to learn of where to get my products is by asking to be on my mailing list–send me a message via email — and following the bakery on Facebook or Instagram.
