Once a small bakery located in the picturesque little village of Leland. Leland is found on a sliver of land between Lake Michigan and Lake Leelanau, on beautiful Leelanau Peninsula. Between 1995-2003 this Leland location sheltered a massive steam injected German oven and was the birthplace of the award winning Stone House Bread Bakery! During the early years in this historic location, the bakery hand formed around 900 loaves of bread for local daily deliveries. As more people discovered the fine, fragrant, crusty loaves the need for more space was unavoidable.
In 2003 Stone House ''sliced off'' a part of the business and moved the entire wholesale artisan baking piece to larger space in Traverse City. We worked with the township to dig our own well to obtain the purest water available for our breads. Between 2003-2013 the original Leland Main Street location was then transformed into a café to honor its beginning and the inspiration of fine bread.
