The Grain

Wild Yeast Bakery’s sourdough breads bring you the true flavors of the grain — the Willamette Valley terroir of several wheat varieties, rye, spelt, barley, corn, and triticale.


The golden glow of our baked goods is from Edison™ wheat, a hard white wheat developed in Washington to grow well in the Skagit and Willamette Valleys.  Because most of the white bran is retained in the milled flour, it has a lovely gold color.

Sunny bread stack


The familiar brown color of whole wheat bread comes from the bran of red wheat. Our Whole Wheat Sourdough is simply 100% Oregon grown and milled whole red wheat.

Whole Wheat Ear


White refined flour is produced when the bran (containing minerals) and the germ (containing oils and vitamins) are removed by milling. Even our “whitest” loaf has 15% whole wheat for flavor and nutrition. 

Pain deCampagne Dough


We blend flours to create a variety of unique and satisfying flavors. Different base doughs are selected to complement the nuts, fruit, and other inclusions. Loaves range from 15% to 100% whole grain.

Our use of whole local, organic grains is unusual in the world of bread. We do it because it is good for your health, the health of the earth, and a healthy local economy.
