Open House Is coming November 2nd Monday night

OK, so all the construction is finished and we finally know kind of what we are doing in the new bakery.  So I would love it if all of you would come down and check it out on Monday November 2nd.  The Time and details will follow soon because I am trying to make it a special event for every one to enjoy.  I am planning on having food and drinks along with other industry vendors that will show you their wares and how they can help all of us save money in these lean times.  So stay tuned to the blog for up and coming information and I hope to see you all there.

Good bye Old Friend :-(

The old Universal Brick lined oven that I started my baking career with is now being torn down forever.  She is just too inefficient and labor intensive to move.  She brought us threw many holidays and 4th of July’s.  I would now ask for a moment of silence for big Bertha’s demise.  1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 ok that’s enough it’s a frigin oven people……………………… we’ll Miss ya Bertha.  Ok, maybe Ronnie won’t miss ya.  But you’ll always be my first.

Yes we have to take it down Brick by Brick for the last time!!!!!!!!

All Moved In :-) Ok almost all moved in

Well, the actuall construction took almost 3 month to the day.  The planning for the project took over a year.  The years off my life because of the whole project is probablly about 10yrs.  Taking that all into concideration WE DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Every one said I was crazy(which is true by the way) Every one said there is no way it can get done in the time frame I needed it done in.  Every one said it would cost double what I am planning for.  You know what I have to say to every one.  I TOLD YOU SO……………………………….. Ok that is a little childish.  How about Nah Nah Nah Nah Nah I did it any way:-)  Here are some pics of the New Harvest House Bakery.

Why is building an oven so damn HARD………

Yes,  that is good old Ronnie Helping Mario (little Italian guy from Italy) build our new deck oven.  Than after we built the new oven we had to move the old oven from Brick to Farmingdale.  I really need to go see a psychologists, any takers?

So we finally got to our new location in Farmingdale, NJ.  It wasn’t easy it wasn’t pretty but we are finally in.  We just did a few test bakes last night and we are all ready to go.

First bread ever from the new location.
