All Good Things...
Hi, friends! The last four-plus years with you all has been an amazing journey! From offering gluten-free treats for friends and neighbors, to renting a small vending table in Cedar Point and later Beaufort Farmer’s Market, to starting an online store, to supplying coffee shops and health food stores, and eventually, returning to an indoor counter space at Salty Air Open Market in Cedar Point—it’s been a fun and wild ride.
So many of you have been with us from those early days and are responsible for the expansion of product offerings and locations. Whether it’s strictly gluten-free or additionally grain, dairy, nut, sugar, egg, soy, corn, and/or animal product free – your requests have broadened all of my baking horizons. You all have been the driving force behind learning to create many allergen-friendly breads and treats. Your support has been unwavering, and brought the demand to a level of output I have barely been able to keep up with. Thank you for that!
After sincere thought & consideration, I’ve decided to set my sights on new goals outside of the kitchen. This is a decision I have wrestled with for awhile, because I have loved being able to provide safe bakes for you all. You have really rocked it and are responsible for creating a thriving gluten-free business with me. While I will be fulfilling orders that have already been placed/discussed, I will not be accepting any new orders after today.
There are others in our community that are offering allergen-friendly foods, some that I have been fortunate enough to work alongside at different points, and others that I have just recently connected with. You may already be familiar with them, but if not, please check them out, try them out, and support their efforts as you have mine. These are folks doing small batch from scratch, not mass production, and I know you all love that as much as I do! Once again, thank you for your enthusiastic support of Beach Town Bakery through the years. It has been a pleasure getting to know each one of you!
