...2011 News of A New Season at Pompanuck...

With the beginning of 2010 Lisa and Scott began a new project at Pompanuck: the Round House Bakery at Pompanuck Farm. What began as a fulfillment of a request by the Cambridge Coop to bake breads and cookies for sale, the bakery project grew last year, by request, to bring bakery goods to other local stores and then to local farmers markets. The requests for goods rapidly outgrew the facilities in the Roundhouse and so Lisa and Scott transformed the former wood shop into a full-scale commercial bakery.

Lisa and Scott have been long time, passionate bakers, (for many years, Lisa has been well known for her amazing, large-scale, sculptural cakes for weddings and celebrations). Round House Bakery began this year as a natural extension of their explorations in sustainable living and right livelihood. Please find us at the following stores and farmers markets:

Since January of this year
, the Round House Bakery has been supplying artisan breads, cookies, muffins, cakes, granolas, frozen pizza doughs and many other baked goods to Cambridge Coop (Wed., Fri.) Spice n' Nice in Bennington VT (Wed.), Wayside General Store in Arlington VT (Fri.) , Hiland Hall School (Wed.) and Shaftsbury General Store (occasionally) in Shaftsbury, VT and at Farmers Markets in Cambridge (Sundays 10-2) and Glens Falls (Saturdays 8-noon).

In an effort to establish the Bakery on solid footing and to take time to reassess Pompanuck's programs, the Board of Directors of Pompanuck Farm has established a year of sabbatical from programs and concerts. We are halfway through this sabbatical year and the assessment continues to provide us with the time and energy to look at our programs in an effort to create a Pompanuck that is more effective, efficient and sustaining for our local, regional community. During 2011 we are offering only test programs and a few longtime retreats to make sure our assessment is clear and our small budget for the year is met.

Please Join us on Sunday, May 29 (noon-dark) for our annual Memorial Day Potluck and Celebration of the Arts. See the above listing...

On Saturday, June 4th during the Cambridge Balloon Festival Weekend, the Bakery is hosting an open house from 3-5pm. Come by and take visit the Bakery, sample delicious baked goods and tour Pompanuck's grounds.
