Great Harvest Bread Company- Johns Creek
As your neighborhood whole-grain headquarters, we make bread the old-fashioned way, completely from scratch… every day!
We mill coarsely stone-ground whole-wheat flour in our bakery every day.
What’s so great about that?
We start from scratch, every morning. Unlike a lot of bakery products out there, we NEVER “add water” to a mix or “bake off” frozen product that came in on a truck, etc. (yuck!)
With a few special exceptions, we don’t add oils, dairy, or fat to our breads. Our bread includes only natural ingredients and NO preservatives, dough conditioners, or chemical additives no one can pronounce!
Our signature bread, Honey Whole Wheat, has only 5 ingredients: fresh-ground flour, water, yeast, honey, and salt! We keep our breads simple because we care about taste and nutrition.
Our bread stays fresh for 7-10 days. It’s great for shipping, too! Our shipped loaves arrive within 2 days.
We use High Quality Wheat!
Nothing influences our bread quality more than wheat. High quality wheat is so important to us that we have our very own Wheat Specialist, whose job is to research and select wheat for our breads. Farmers send us a lot of wheat samples – about 50 bags a year. We test each bag by baking loaves from each, turning down the bags which aren’t up to our high standards (usually 30-40%). We are always looking for wheat that bakes well, has extraordinary taste, has the most protein, and high fiber.
All that, just to ensure that Great Harvest breads are the most delicious & nutritious that they can be.
