A Little History…

Your Great Harvest Bread Co. in Cajun Country is a dream come true — our dream!  We’ve been milling wheat and making bread for family and friends for over 8 years. Our passion for great tasting, nutritious bread, and our desire to run a community-based business, led us to Great Harvest. They have been making great bread for communities across the U.S. for over 30 years.

Your Lafayette Great Harvest looks like no other Great Harvest out there. We operate under a “Freedom Franchise.” The “Freedom” part means that we get to run our business in a way that meets our community’s unique needs like baking King Cakes during Mardi Gras season! The “Franchise” part gives us access to the recipes and processes that have been continuously improving over three decades. The result is breads, sweetsand sandwiches that’ll make you say “talk about good”!

Many years ago we made the decision to pursue our dream. So, we said good-bye to Corporate America, kicked the suit and tie and are now up to our elbows in dough. It was our desire to move home (Michelle’s a Eunice native!) after living in Colorado for several years. We believed it was important for our children to grow up near their coozan’s, grandparents, aunts, & uncles! Now that we’re back in the South, we have been blessed to be able to spend lots of time with our family.

We continue to be excited about bringing the ancient tradition of grinding wheat and baking bread made-from-scratch to you, our neighbors, friends, and family. Thanks for stopping by, we’re glad you came!
