Farm to Bakery

We are a small family-owned and operated business that specializes in long fermentation artisan sourdough bread and baked goods using organic, local grains and ingredients.

With the mission to strengthen our strong local food economy, we support farmers and ranchers located in the Northern New Mexico and Southern Colorado bioregion, while giving priority to heritage and heirloom grains.

We serve our offerings to our valued customers on a first come first serve basis.

From our kitchen to yours, with love.

Our long fermentation process comes with benefits including delicious full sourdough flavors, lower glycemic index numbers, breakdown of anti-nutrients in grains like phytic acid, breakdown of gluten and carbohydrates by microorganisms, longer shelf life, and an easier digestion. 

Our offerings are available at our shops and our Taos Farmers Market's booth only.

"The best sourdough bread"

The best sourdough bread we’ve had in years didn’t come from San Francisco, New York, or Sydney. It was pulled from the oven by Andre Kempton, an under-the-radar wheat whisperer in Taos, New Mexico.


"No reaction at all"

"This is the best bread I have ever had the great pleasure of eating. I am gluten sensitive and have no reaction at all to their bread."

"Delicious panettone"

"I bought a panettone on Saturday morning here in Santa Fe. So delicious. Haven’t had one this good since we lived in San Francisco in the 1970’s. Bravo Wild Leaven Bakery!"
