What do a hairdresser with a bum wing and a builder with a broken back do when faced with choosing new career paths in their mid-forties? They start baking bread.
Nord was created in 2017 while we were both rehabbing injuries and trying to figure out a way to create new careers doing something we both loved.
After months of hockey pucks and other dough disasters, some really great bread started happening. So, I started bringing baskets of bread into the hair salons where I had previously worked and selling to staff and clients. The demand grew, and one salon turned into four.
Soon we were making weekly home deliveries to Doylestown residents. Next, Jamie Hollander Gourmet in New Hope started selling our bread and using it for catering events. The Farmer’s markets came next, and this year we sold bread from 5 area markets in Doylestown, Perkasie, Yardley, Wrightstown and Horsham.
We are passionate about creating bread the “old fashioned” way, using the best grown flours out there and local and organic products whenever we can. We love educating people about the fermentation processes that make our products an option for people with gluten sensitivities who thought that their days of freshly-made bread were over.
