Meet Our Bakers

Artisanal Sweet & Savory Baked Goods

Prevail Bakehouse

Erik and Maria Burstiner own & operate Prevail Bakehouse, a micro bakery that uses old world techniques to reestablish bread in the community. Prevail uses only organic, stone milled, whole grain flour, sourced from Lindley Mills in North Carolina. Each loaf is thoughtfully fermented and leavened by captured wild yeast. This slow fermentation allows time for the breakdown of the flour to be more digestible and more nutritionally available. This process also creates amazing and unique flavors and extends the shelf life of the bread naturally.  Everything is baked in our wood-fired oven. Every Saturday, May through October.
