  1. Janaia, this is another one of those shows that I’ll watch over and over again! What a lovely woman in the video, and what she has accomplished is very inspirational.
    Thank you for all you do to bring these stories out for us.
    In troubled times like these it is so important for people to have examples of coping and success that they can turn to for inspiration.

    thanks again!

  2. My husband and I have started a CSB in Albany, NY! We use local, organic flours & other primarily local, organic ingredients.

    Hey Joanna, How great this is. Do you ever ship out of state? Couse I would like to be a shareholder if that is possible. I now live in Arlington, Texas. Let me know. I love the video with zuchinna bread!

    Janaia & Robyn,
    Great show!!! Really helpful for me as I am planning to establish a bread CSA in late Spring after I complete my wood fired Cob Oven and learn how to bake in it. Then I will be able to bake all summer without heating up our straw bale house!!!

    Peace & Joy,
