    Great to see another up and coming baker! Pics are great! I can almost smell the bread – YUM! If you ever want to reach out to other bakers – keep RBA (Retail Bakers of America) in mind. We can help. All the best!!

    I was in the middle for waiting for you, the computer, something to process the extention of my order for 1 loaf of bread a week for another month when the electricity in my neighborhood went dead. Could someone check to see if my order went through. Thanks, Becky

    Can’t wait to hear about when your new place will open…with your own mill and oven…you must be pumped! Much love from your two crazy lady friends in the Rheinland Pfalz in Germany!

      Hello…it’s me…We’re flying into San Francisco Wednesday afternoon but, unfortunately, will not be coming into the city. My father died and we’re headed to SoCal to spend Christmas with my mom and to attend the remembrance for him a few days later. For the first time in 23 years, my brother, sisters and I, and all of our children will be together in the same place at the same time. Doris and I will be spending Wednesday night in Half Moon Bay and the night of January 1st, as well. As much as I would like to come and see you and GET SOME OF YOUR BREAD, this time it just won’t happen. Hope everything is going well…I love hearing about the progress you are making as the date for the opening of The Mill nears. Keep up the great work. Hi from Doris!


      • SALLLLLY!!! so sorry to hear about the loss of your papa. sounds like it will be a merry reunion of the family thats been a long time coming. you’ll be in half moon bay, eh? let’s be in touch, shoot me an e-mail, if there is any way that i can sneak down there to have some coffee with you two, maybe even bring you a loaf, i will do it. travel safe, hit to Doris, thank you so much for your unerring support, it means the world to me.

  6. Your bread is gorgeous!! I love bread too cuz I love olive oil :) I own a mom n pop shop (actually a mom n mom shop) in Noe Valley. We recently opened and our peeps are asking about bread to go with their pasta and olive oil purchases. I’d love to see if we could do something together.

    Wat up Josey! man, just saw this bread mission your on and really love how its progressing for you. Im just cruising the web trying to find other people out there doing their thing with bread, make contacts and yip share the journey i guess.
    Im doing my thing, Baking woodfired organic sourdough in a little city called Wellington in New Zealand and delivering it to folks around the place. Its a good trip man, following through with this idea and bringing some epic bread action to peoples saturday mornins. Right now i just bake once a week, my bedroom is a converted bakery and i rent some space and a big pizza oven at a local pizza place. people are catching on, and its sweet. so sweet.

    At the moment i really want to create a network of CSB style bakers all over the world where when the need comes up we can join each other for sharing skills and knowledge maybe even internships. the idea of it being a dynamic thing is what gets me stoked.
    What do you think man? is that something you’d be into? doing a month or so with another baker somewhere in this world and also having others with you? just chucking it out there:)

    anyways man. rant over.
    love what your up to

    From a financial planner perspective, who works with many entrepreneurs, you have a gift.. I saw your article and can see how you may help others grow through the right collaboration. I was speaking with a local grocer who is is frustrated w/Orowheat and has an overall interst in a cottage industry approach/offering and thought he and you might benefit from collaborating. His name is Andy Bacich, from Andy’s Market in San Rafael 415 456-5730..
    Best of luck, (which you won’t need),

    I missed the article. Where can I find it?

    My name is Daniel Burckhard
    I love your bread! And I love what you do.
    Question: do you ever or would you consider taking in any stages or part time interns?
    If so…I’m your man
    I’m a hard worker and I learn quick.
    And I pour my soul into my craft.
    Thanks for your consideration and awesome bread!

  13. Bonnie Matteson says:

    Where can I buy your bread or will you mail order it??
    I am in Milwaukie, Oregon 97222

    Hey Josey,
    I’m the boring curriculum developer who stopped you on the street a couple months back! Just taking a break from my boring cubicle job to see what you are up to these days. So sad to see your cutie pie face all banged up. It must make it really hard to eat bread. : (

    Anyway, just wanted to send you some love and healing vibes. We’re a cycling family too and face + pavement just sucks.

    Hope you get better quick and good good good going protecting your noggin. I’m going to use you as a cautionary tale for my munchkids.

    I. Love. Bread.

  16. Christine Jessup says:

    Just had your bread today…Love love…where can I get it on SF Peninsula?

  17. ovenandapron says:

    Saw an article featuring you and your bread on Serious Eats :) It looks wonderful, and you’re not so bad yourself! I’ve never made it out to SF but if I do, I’ll be sure to try your bread. Check out my blog if you have a spare moment,
    Amanda :)

    Hi Josey. Jason Raducha sends his regards from Phoenix. I hear you might be topping your bread with some red sauce on Friday nights. Would you like a sample of my family’s tomatoes? Let me know at 408-656-0931 or Best wishes.

    Just read article on This Week in Germany about the baker exchange with the baker from Germany. Said it was supposed to start in November but did not give much detail about when, where etc. to buy the product

    Josey…I was just going through some stuff, looking for “important” documents and came across your handwriting…the little ditty you wrote one PA homecoming, many many moons ago. What a hoot!!! It’s always great to hear of your exploits and successes. I am a really proud former teacher, needless to say…and I love it when people write about you that you are typically San Franciscan! But I really think being a Vermonter might be the next best thing…or maybe it’s the other way around. Doris and I are headed to LA to see my mom for Christmas…won’t be in the Bay area, at all…just a short week’s visit, this time, and it’s too bad we didn’t connect last year…it was a pretty emotionally wrought trip, but a good one for us…the Coast Highway saved us!!! But one day, we will walk into The Mill and then there will be some serious hugging! Have great holidays and know that we agree with you completely…life IS a wonder…much love from germany. of course, if you’re ever on this side of the pond, visiting your new German baker friend, for example, we’ll have to connect. Be well!!!
