The Big Brick House Bakery was started by Leigh, a young mother, who explored the process of commercial flour and decided to make a change. In 2004 she purchased a small electric stone mill, which began her adventure on true whole grain flour.  The bakery retail was opened in Wabash, Indiana on her Grandmother’s birthday in October of 2007. Leigh paid tribute to her Grandmother Robbins who kindled her interest in baking by doing so. We were awarded the honor of being an Indiana Artisan for our breads in 2008.

In 2011 the bakery closed their retail business in Wabash, Indiana to do a year round farmer’s market in Fort Wayne, Indiana, to have direct access to the kind of customers she was seeking. The Farm market networking allowed her to wholesale most of her fresh products with local restaurants and grocery stores. Due to the popular demand of a true whole grain products The Big Brick House Bakery started their noodle and pasta line in 2014. In 2015 has been a year of growth we opened our online retail to further reach more customers, our pasta’s were accepted into the Indiana Grown and Indiana Artisan program.  We continue to add Retail stores and Restaurants to our network.

The bakery now utilizes different types of grains and local ingredients to make all of our products. We use our stone mill daily to grind small batches of grain to provide the integrity and flavor of our artisan breads, flour, mixes, noodles, and pasta.

 You can select from our items for Leigh to put together a gift basket to fit any occasion. Leigh is always looking to expand her product line for the bakery and is open to suggestions.

There are few places that I would call truly world class, but this is one of them. The BBHB is the only bakery that I know of that actually makes their wares from scratch. They even grind their own flour! I am not sure if this is true of all of their products, but they even make organic items. Be sure to stop by and pick something up from here. If the prices are a little off putting, see if there is anything from the day before.
