We would like to congratulate and wish Hannah the best of luck. Hannah has been taking care of, riding and racing horses most of her life (she's also been known to race cars on occasion as well). Everyone here that has worked with her and our customers that have been greeted by her smile know that she is a very intelligent, hardworking person with a great sense of humor that always has a smile on her face.
Hannah is a graduate of Gaylord High School. She is now heading out to Billings, Montana (Yes, you should insert a Hannah Montana joke here). She is going to major in Equine Studies at Rocky Mountain College and continue to pursue her love of everything horses.
We are very proud of her accomplishments. She is going to be missed at The Dutch Oven Bakery, but we know that she is going to be very successful at whatever her life brings her.
Hannah,
Congratulations. Good luck. Have fun, but not too much horsing around (sorry, couldn't resist). Keep in touch and we hope to see and hear from you soon. We are very proud of you,
The Dutch Oven Bakery Team

I was thinking about some kind of April Fools Day post. But it then occurred to me that today is our family's third anniversary of starting this bakery adventure. And what an adventure it has been! From spending the first year learning the business, then dealing with everything COVID the past two years to now trying to navigate through crazy increases in costs. It hasn't always been easy. Sometimes it feels like it has been a three year long, bad April Fools joke.
But then we see how our kids have grown with the business, the lessons they have learned, how proud they are to say they are part of all this. Our employees; how they have embraced this business and our family has been simply unbelievable. It is feels very much like our family has grown. And then there are our customers. What an amazing supportive bunch.
So, instead of a bad April Fools joke, I just want to say thank you to my family, our great employees (bonus family), and all of you customers that make all of the day to day struggles meaningful.
We look forward to many more years, many more struggles and many more great memories.
Thank you everyone and may your April Fools jokes be the greatest ever.

This is my personal favorite charity. Final box collection this year is December 9th, so please bring toys by December 8th. We would like to fill as many boxes as possible this year. To help, next week, November 16-20, we will take $2 from every order of French Toast sold to buy toys to donate. Let's see how many smiles we can create this Christmas. Thank you

We will be closed this Saturday, August 14th. This weekend is the Top O'Michigan Boat Race, one of our busiest weekends of the year. However, most of our staff has requested Saturday off. Many of those have not requested a day off in a very long time. Everyone one of them has earned the day off and I cannot bring myself to deny that request for any of them. For that reason, the entire staff is going to get a break this weekend (well, most. We still have our daily deliveries and Harbor Springs Farmer Market Saturday). We apologize for this inconvenience. Thanks again for your continued support, everyone has been great to us through these turbulent times and we truly appreciate it.

We have an opening for overnight baker. Prepare and bake items such as bread, cookies, danishes, doughnuts, etc. Experience is helpful, but we are more interested in the right personality and eagerness to learn. Must be able to work well with others with little to no supervision.

As most small businesses face struggles during these times, we find ourselves not immune. We feel fortunate that it looks like The Dutch Oven Bakery will survive, however we need to make some changes, at least temporarily.
First, in an effort to give our staff that have remained dedicated through this craziness a break, we will be closed on Sundays. Our hours of business will be Tuesday through Saturday from 6:30 AM until 5:30 PM.
We are also making some major changes to our deli/café area. There are a few reasons for this. Ingredient costs have went through the roof, if we are lucky enough to get what we order. Our staff feels like we are letting customers down when we have to tell you that we are out of a product. It is getting more and more difficult to get product. Even though it is a global supply chain issue, we still do not like not being able to satisfy the customer. This decision was also made to help alleviate some of the stresses our employees are under. Finally, staffing shortages do not allow us to give each customer the attention you deserve. This was a tough decision to make, but we strongly believe it is the correct one to save this business.
The changes to the deli area are as follows. We are temporarily ceasing all made to order meals. We will however offer some alternatives. We will continue our soups and add premade sandwiches and other grab and go options.
Our hope is that things return to normal soon. I fully believe there is a silver lining in every situation, you just have to look for it. We are going to try to take advantage of this setback and learn new ways to provide our customers with even better products and services. While we are disappointed to make this decision, we are very excited about some of the new ideas we have discussed.
We apologize for the temporary changes and thank you in advance for your understanding and for your continued support. We truly have great customers and we appreciate each of you.

Very excited with our new partnership with Ziibimijwang Farm.  These are great products that we use in our home.

Thank you to everyone that came to support Conner Sunday. We were able to sell quite a few slices of French Toast, got some very nice donations and have some fun. It is great to know that we live and work in a community that supports each other. We are also very happy that we were able to match 50% of the all the money collected. Thanks again for all of the support.
Conner, we hope this helps at least a little bit.

Look at how we've grown. Rob and Erika purchased this bakery in 2019 with the thought that after 80 years it was ready for a growth spurt. We have definitely felt growing pains over the past two years, but we are very excited about what the future holds. Now we just need to get that kid in the picture to quit growing so fast.
Thank you to all of our great employees and you customers that have supported us through this adventure.

Gonna be a late night of preparing, but it'll be worth it. Finally a little piece of normalcy coming. Tomorrow is the first Farmer's Market in Charlevoix and Harbor Springs' starts Saturday. See you there!
Do you have any low sodium bread?
We made french toast with your cinnamon bread on Easter morning. It was amazing! You are such an asset to Alanson. Thank you.

I overheard a conversation today, a couple complaining about customer service at a place I frequent that I know has great customer service. While it was not my business, the more I thought about it, the more the conversation disturbed me. With that, I feel it necessary to share a thought. Please be patient with small businesses during these times of uncertainty. We are all in uncharted territory. Aside from owners trying to make contingency plans for the unknown, employees are dealing with new stresses. Families need to rearrange their lives (hopefully for only a short period of time). This means child care problems may emerge, leaving businesses short staffed. This virus has dominated conversations and the news. Some people have true concern about their health. Other people have family members that cannot go to work due to shutdowns. I believe I speak for all small businesses in saying that we are going to do our very best to serve our customers and get through this mess. We are also going to do whatever we can to ensure the health of our teams. So please just be patient when you visit a business, the employees there have a lot on their minds as well and I can assure you, they are doing the very best they can. Be kind and stay healthy.
We have been getting our childrens’ birthday cakes from Dutch Oven since my oldest was born! Every year we look forward to sending you an idea of whatever they are into that year and you always do such an amazing job! Thank you!!!!
