Patchwork Farm and Bakery East Hardwick, VT
Charlie is one of the funniest bakers we have ever met. He and his wife, Anne, will tell you that their farm and bakery in East Hardwick, VT began as a wonderful accident. Anne and Charlie were growing vegetables on a 3 acre market garden and looking for a new venture to support themselves and their two daughters. What began as a joke and then an experiment in the early 2000s has grown into a fully fledged brick oven bakery with more than 25 varieties of sourdough breads, crackers, and matzoh and as many ingredients as possible sourced from local producers. He is featured on Rise Up! The Baker Podcast with Mark Dyck. Click Here and start at 5:43 to hear the conversation with Charlie!
