This submission is via Bristol Rising member, Roberta Allain. She once visited “When Pigs Fly” bakery in Maine, and said the things they bake are simply to die for!
” Bread, real bread as I remember my grandmother made. Perfection!!! And any connection to Pink Floyd would be icing on the ‘bread’ – flying pigs and all. The Honey Oat is my favorite – it makes perfect sense! “
Add in the fact they use all natural, no preservatives, non-bleached ingredients, it’s a perfect marriage of health consciousness meets deliciousness!
Here’s a little info from the website:
“We make old-world, artisan breads fresh every day. Our customers in New England and beyond return to our stores, other retail locations, and our convenient website to purchase and enjoy these classic and specialty breads, each made with the finest, natural ingredients.
At When Pigs Fly Bakery, it takes about 36 hours from start to finish to bake a loaf of bread. When purchasing either our pre-sliced or par-baked breads, you eliminate all the hassles of making fresh bread and enjoy all the benefits. Choose from over 25 handcrafted varieties of classic and artisan specialty breads.”
Apparently they are very popular with the few locales they have in Maine and Mass., and Roberta swears it’s the best bakery she’s ever been to!
So what do you say, Bristol?! Here are some key questions people have been asking:
With the idea of the Artisan Bakery/Cafe would it be like a Panera where you could purchase baked goods as well as breakfast or lunch?
Would it be like a coffeehouse with baked goods that can be purchased?
Would they sell sandwiches and salads like Bolo Bakery and Cafe Del Mondo?
Is it a combination of a Borders and Books and a Panera?
Is there such a place in another town that is similar?
