Organic Baking without Compromise

Little Stream Bakery hand crafts each loaf of its naturally leavened (no yeast added), stone ground flour bread using only organically grown grains. The loaves are then baked to perfection in a wood fired oven. Taste the difference that integrity and commitment to quality can bring!

At Little Stream we take bread's reputation as the staff of life seriously. We bake simply; most of our breads contain only whole grains, deep well water & unrefined sea salt with the occasional addition of seeds.

The Bakery

Little Stream Bakery is located in the Upper Ottawa Valley on transitional land at the edge of the Canadian Shield. We are a small business with environmental integrity and pride ourselves in hand crafting each loaf. With our expansion and relocation to a renovated dairy in the hamlet of Glen Tay, near Perth, we are now able to complement our staple line of breads with a variety of rustic pastries.

Since establishing Little Stream Bakery in 1992, we continue to receive many letters and phone calls from our customers saying how much they enjoy our bread. Our baked goods are available in fine natural and fresh food stores and are served in several select restaurants throughout Eastern Canada and the North East U.S.A.

Where is the Little Stream?

beck: noun (N. Engl.) -Brook, mountain stream

Graham Beck, founder of Little Stream Bakery, chose to use a North American form of his English name for the bakery. We subsequently adopted the stream from the original bakery site as a symbol for our extraordinary commitment to organic farming and wholesome foods. The gentle and forgiving manner in which a stream erodes its bed signifies slow and consistent change. We feel our holistic approach helps us offer a serious alternative to
industrial food.
