Stefan Senders, co-owner and baker at Wide Awake Bakery in Trumansburg, NY

Published on: 28 July 2021

One farm, one bakery and a well fed community.  That's the Wide Awake Bakery story.  In this episode, Mark learns about the magical meeting when Stefan's neighbour Thor Oechsner suggested baking with wheat from Thor's farm, how they followed the CSA model for getting their bread to the people, and how, over the years, Stefan continues to explore new ways to use his bread for the greater good.   It's a wonderful chat with an inspirational baker.
