Our Story:

This story begins when I was still a child, watching my Nana bake bread (and bake her special rolls!) for our family celebrations. The flavor of those fresh, homemade baked goods inspired me to start my own baking journey -- a journey that has led to creating my own baking company: Prairie Sky Breads.

We launched Prairie Sky Breads in 2014 when I, baking in my mother-in-law’s kitchen, made 12 loaves of bread for the Minot Farmer’s Market. Folks really enjoyed the crusty, "artisan" style bread that we baked... and we sold all 12 loaves! So we made more. And more. By our next season at market, we were coming with over 100 loaves of freshly baked bread... and we still could not meet demand. People were really digging the bread and some of the other baked goods -- like scones -- that we were bringing to Market. 

When Farmer’s Market ended in the fall, many of our customers starting asking how they could get freshly baked bread in the winter. And so we started our "Bread Subscriptions" which featured home delivery during the off-season. At that point, we were baking year-round and this was starting to look a lot like a real bakery!

Currently, our baking operations are located in the Parker Center in downtown Minot. We are super fortunate to be here… but we are starting to burst at the seams. We are in need of bigger ovens -- and ovens that are specially designed to make artisan style bread: baguettes, crusty rye breads, multi-grain loaves, crispy pizza crusts… We need a bigger mixer, we need more work space, storage space, we need more space! We need… to open our own bakery! Our current plans are to move across the street into the "old antique building" and open our bakery doors in early 2019!

At Prairie Sky Breads we work hard to serve our Minot community members the highest quality baked goods, made with real ingredients, baked fresh for you and your family. We believe in this bread. It is what we eat in our family. It is what we want to continue baking for our neighbors here in Minot. 

In 2020 we opened our own space in downtown Minot to do just that: a bakery where we can produce great, healthy breads, specialty baked goods, stone-hearth pizzas -- a place where we can gather together as a community and sip good coffee and break bread together.
