Enjoy some of the best artisanal loaves we’ve ever tasted, delivered right to your door. From New England’s legendary Nashoba bakery, this classic sourdough bread derives its complex character from local wild yeasts in the starter, made from wild concord grapes harvested from the banks of the Nashoba Brook. Artisan bakers leaven the bread using a slow-rise process that further enhances the flavor, giving the finished loaves a mild, tangy taste. Requiring 24 hours to prepare from start to finish, the hand-shaped loaves are baked in old-style hearth ovens for a crisp, golden crust that beautifully complements the moist, supple crumb.

  • Three loaves, approx. 1 lb. 5 oz. each.
  • Shipped fresh.
  • Made in USA.

  • Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I purchased the sourdough bread. I was under the impression that it is baked to order. My bread arrived as hard as a brick. The flavor profile was very average, nothing special. Very disappointed and will not order again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious Original Great Tasting Sourdough Bread So glad I ordered these loaves and i will definitely be ordering more. Shipping was fast and the loaves are so delicious. They freeze very well too. Tastes like the real deal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tasting Sourdough! I have dysbiosis (yeast overgrowth causes an imbalance in good and bad bacteria in my abdomen), so sugar and yeast feed the yeast. My naturopath recommended a sourdough with a process of slow fermentation that allows the bacteria to break down the carbohydrates and gluten, making it easier for the body to digest. This worked great and it has a classic sourdough taste. I eat a slice daily after I toast it and use a little butter. No side affects at all.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sourdough! I used to bake my own sourdough boule at home. Now that I have no time now to maintain the sourdough culture and to prepare the dough, I really miss the bread. Living in the middle of nowhere didn't help either. So I decided to try out these loaves. Though they're different from what I used to make, I have to say for an online ordered bread, they are better than expected. The tanginess is about right. The crust is thin and crunchy. The crumb is chewy and airy enough. Definitely delicious that I finished half the loaf in one go :P.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious! I had given up buying sourdough in the grocery stores as I could never taste the "sour". This bread is so good that I have been eating it exclusively for 2 months now. I am on my 3rd order of 3 loaves and just placed an order for my 4th. My husband and I don't eat any other breads. It is hearty & substantial with good consistency and I love that I have to really chew it. Freezes well. I get lots of compliments when I serve it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good! I purchased this a few weeks ago and am working through my third (last) loaf. I'm picky about sourdough - mostly because I'd been spoiled on the San Francisco kind. These were really good. Sliced, toasted with cultured butter spread over a slice, with a really good cup of coffee, make for some great mornings. These guys freeze well, and they're like a little black dress... it just goes with everything. You won't be disappointed, the quality is fantastic.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Real Sourdough! So happy to find slow rise, authentic sourdough. This bread is delicious but you do need to reheat the loaf or toast it otherwise it's a bit chewy. Other reviewers have suggested freezing the loaves and they are correct; they reheat beautifully. WS please consider making other breads from this company available!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superior Sourdough I've ordered this bread often, because I love sourdough and find most versions disappoint. Toast it! The crispy crust is sublime. Make sandwiches! If you have a small household, cut the loaves in half, wrap well, and freeze them--they do well. The sourdough tang and flavor are wonderful, as is the chewy texture. And it's healthy bread to boot!

    Is this baked on cornmeal? (Son very allergic to corn so need to know if corn meal coats the base.)

    Asked by: kitm
    Hi kitm, While the bread is not coated with cornmeal, there are trace amounts present in the bread.
