10/03/2019 Our flour certified by the Clean Label Project!

Years ago we switched our main white flour from conventional to “transitional”, which completed a long research journey of trying to find the right flour to join locally sourced organic Whole Wheat, Spelt, Khorasan, and Rye as our staple ingredient.

Our wheat has since then been farmed right across the border in Quebec, using environmentally friendly “Agriculture Raisonnee” agronomy practices, and we were very proud to have quietly joined a sustainable agriculture chain which connects farmers, millers, bakers, and customers who all care about minimizing their environmental footprint.
 
In addition to the pleasure of knowing our farmers and millers personally, and the positive impact on the environment, we also started to control exactly which varieties of wheat go into our flour blend, which was never the case in the past with any type of flour we used. Needless to say, we were excited!
 
In more recent news, our flour was independantly tested and awarded the Clean Label Project Purity Award, confirming that it's free of glypohsate (Round Up), mercury, and lead. With the raised awarness about harmful chemicals that end up in food as a result of irresponsible, chemical-company-driven farming, we decided not to keep quiet about it and to share this information with you instead... "sometimes what's not on the label is what's most important"!
 
Clean Label Project uses data and science to reveal the true contents of consumer products.  Products are tested in an analytical chemistry laboratory for 130 harfmul environmental contaminants and toxins.  Results are published as Product Ratings.  You can find out more at www.cleanlabelproject.org.

12/06/2014 Stay warm!

Beekeepers made their last check of the year on our hives today and found that our bees are clustered together in the center of the box to keep warm. They added some winter feed on top of the frames, which is a small patty that consists of mostly sugar and a little bit of water. This will act as a food reserve in the unlikely event that they eat all their stored honey over the next few cold months. They also flipped the entrance reducer to the smallest opening so that they can keep their warmth in most efficiently and added a small wreath to the hive for decoration.  Our bees are sure to have a fun and warm holiday season ahead... we wish you the same!

08/07/2014 IGGY'S HONEY!

Inspired by a TED Talk video of professor Noah Wilson-Rich that Ludmilla found, in 2013 we contacted him to see how Iggy’s can help in his quest to keep bees and our environment healthier.  The result is in the jar!  First bottling of Iggy’s own Cambridge honey is here, from 12 strong hives which house well over a half a million bees, located right behind the trains, next to the bakery. 

These busy bees seem to be enjoying our neighborhood very much, pollenating and collecting nectar from flowers around Fresh Pond, Magnolia Park, Danehy Park and as far as Mount Auburn Cemetery and Menotomy Rocks! 

Bees are crucial to our eco-system and for our agriculture, so if you would like to help fight negative effects of colony collapse disorder by doing some urban beekeeping yourself, please contact Best Bees as soon as you can at info@bestbees.com!

05/22/2014 Ancient Grains

We've been interested in ancient grains for a long time, and even made a delicious spelt bread almost ten years ago, but that effort didn't take.  Ancient varieties of wheat are delicious, nutritious, and are said to be agreeable with people who have a low tollerance for gluten, so we've decided to give them another try.

Stop by our store and taste what we've been making using khorasan (kamut), einkorn, red fife and other ancient grains... there is always one of them around!  We love these new breads and think you'll like them, too!

04/29/2014 HAPPY SPRING!

We know it doesn't feel quite like it's here yet, but we are well over a month into spring and craving all those delicious things that spring brings along!  So come by the store when you get a chance because our spring menu has started to slowly come alive:

- we got some awesome organic spinach from Flying Pond Farm in Maine, for our spinach/cherry tomato/goat cheese pizza!

- first ramps of the season are here, from Nectar Hills Farm in upstate NY, and we are all over them with our ramp pizza!

- yes, it comes from California, but we don't care... asparagus/smoked cheddar/goat cheese pizza and asparagus/feta sandwich are here!!!

Love,
