GeneralBlack Bear Bakery is a collective bakery. The project has 3 primary goals: To produce healthy, affordable food using ecological methods.
To foster consensus-based decision making in a dynamic environment that challenges division-of-labor in business.
To present participants with opportunities and tools for sustenance and individual growth in a worker controlled and operated bakery.

Black Bear Bakery bakes the old world Lickhalter rye breads as well as a selection of organic whole grain breads and sweets. Since 1998 Black Bear Bakery has been a worker-owned collective. We are dedicated to being a different kind of work place that allows its participants to be at the center of a worker-controlled environment. Black Bear is also proud to have community involvement at the very core of our mission. Soon we will be expanding our menu to include a variety of breakfast and lunch dishes and sandwiches. More details soon!
