Stone Hearth Bakery

From Need to Knead We’re Giving Rise to More than Just Bread

Stone Hearth Bakery is a social enterprise established in 1982 providing a work-based training program in the high demand skill of baking. The retail and wholesale bakery is the only kosher bakery east of Montreal producing premium quality European-styled, breads, bagels and specialty baked goods that are distributed throughout the Maritimes, and can be found in most major grocery stores. To be certified as a kosher bakery all bread products, regardless of their ingredients must be parve, meaning they cannot contain any dairy or meat ingredients.

Stone Hearth breads are hand-shaped, allowed to develop slowly, and baked in a stone hearth oven. They are a true reflection of the care and commitment our bakers bring to the art of bread making.

Our Participants are saying...

"My experience at Stone Hearth is very good because they teach you the skills you need to work in a regular job. I have done many different jobs in this place and as an employee at Stone Hearth I have experienced lots of things. Most of all my time here has been lots of fun it also has its ups and downs as well but everybody gets along.

The place as a whole is a training facility which means a whole lot to different people and for all walks of life. Without this program me and many others would not have the opportunity to get the experience we need to enable themselves to employment.

They in part are helpful in certain parts of the activity within the training facility. In conclusion I would hope that the skill I learned here will provide the training I need."
