About Wild Leaven Bakery

Wild Leaven Bakery is a small family-owned and operated business that specializes in long fermentation artisanal sourdough bread and baked goods using organic, local grains and ingredients.

Wild Leaven Bakery sources organic ingredients and supports farmers and ranchers located in the Northern New Mexico and Southern Colorado bioregion, while giving priority to heritage and heirloom grains.

Besides our Taos retail store, you can find our organic sourdough bread in 22 locations throughout New Mexico. At our Taos retail store, we offer breakfast and lunch all day, and during the Taos Farmers Market’s season, you can meet us there on Saturday mornings to pick up your favorite bread and baked goods. 

Our unique 24-hour fermentation process comes with numerous 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. 

Bon appétit!
