Fall is officially here! And what’s a fall season without the sweet aroma of pumpkin spice and a delectable slice of pumpkin pie at your family gathering? Pumpkins rule the season! And we aren’t the only ones who like pumpkins…
Meet Great Harvest Bread Company in West Cobb: a fun, socially conscious bakery and cafe that serves up homemade breads, sandwiches and an array of healthful goodies.
Bob and Cindy Mossey, the owners of Great Harvest Bread Company in West Cobb, are thrilled to be a part of something both healthy and enjoyable. These “bread heads” have been with Great Harvest for two years now and have made an impact on the community through charitable giving…as well as turned the tables on the idea that a quick meal has to be unhealthy.
good ol’ fashioned methods
What makes Great Harvest…well, great…is the way they create their goodies. High protein Montana spring-wheat flour is stone ground every morning. The bakers onsite then use traditional methods of bread making, utilizing ‘low tech,’ old-fashioned, from-scratch baking. All bread is hand-kneaded with zero fats, oils or preservatives (yummy and nutritious!).
Here’s a small sampling of the tasty treats served up at Great Harvest Bakery:
- Fresh coffee and breakfast goodies
- Lunch sandwiches (served from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.)
- Handcrafted whole grain breads and baked goods made with pure and simple ingredients
- Baskets and shipping boxes for snail mail treats for friends and family
