Community Supported Bakery

Butter Bakery Cafe is excited to offer a Community Supported Bakery project for the 2019 growing season!

Sign up once, then pick up a loaf of bread every week through October, starting the third week of June.

Choose to pick up Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays after 2 pm.  Pick up days correspond to our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) veggie share drops – but you don't have to have a veggie share to join our CSB!

Pay $90 at the start of the season (or choose a payment plan), and save more than 10% off our retail prices.

for an additional $20 and we will extend your share all the way to Thanksgiving with a bread of your choice for your holiday table!

Plus, you'll get to try new breads before anyone else!

Season prices will be offered until all shares are filled - extension deal ends June 1.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Community Supported Bakery?

Community Supported Bakery (CSB) is a locally based investment system modeled on Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). Neighbors invest in a business at the beginning of the season in exchange for a share of a farm or bakery's product. 

What's in your CSB?

Bread! Our baker will put out one beautiful loaf or a bag of rolls baked for you every week. We might even throw in a treat for the road! Selections might include our multigrain or cinnamon swirl loaves, our olive oil foccacia, various rolls, and seasonal specialties. 

Why is Butter offering a CSB project? 

While we've enjoyed baking homemade bread for our kitchen for several years, we have only recently begun to offer bread for retail and this is a great way to expand our offerings. 

What kinds of local ingredients do you use?

We use flours and grains from Swany Flour Mill and Whole Grain Milling, butter from Hope Creamery and dairy from Valley View Farms Cooperative (all MN) and spices from Frontier Co-op in Iowa. We also look forward to putting ingredients from the farm shares our cafe receives into use for specialty breads!

How does payment work? 

You'll pay on or before your first day of pick up. Payment plans are available to split the total in two or three payments across the 18 week season.

Can you accommodate dietary needs?

We will accommodate allergens as possible, but that may mean replacing one bread with another. All of our breads list the ingredients used for reference as needed.

What if I’m on vacation or want to stop my pick ups?

Paying for a share is refundable up until the start date. You can transfer your share to another person and you can certainly have a friend pick up your bread if you are away. You also have the option of donating your bread during vacation weeks to the Nicollet Square Housing program that we partner with for internship training. Once the share season has begun we can not refund the share.
