Our Bread is Old School.
The essence of baking is simple - a few ingredients transformed through the heat of the oven, into something that, throughout time, has sustained life. This is simple, but not easy and it is the skill of the baker that determines the outcome. Mixing, shaping, balancing the process of fermentation, at every one of these steps the baker's skill and artistry are judged by the results.
White Lotus Farms head baker began by studying in the best local bakeries and then his passion for quality lead him on a nationwide pilgrimage seeking out the best of the best, talking to them, studying their methods and baking along side them. Jonathan Stephens of Northampton, MA's Hungry Ghost Bakery, Josey Baker of San Francisco, Della Fattoria of Petaluma, CA, Greg Mindel and Mike Zakowski all added to his skill set.
Our breads are available at local Ann Arbor markets and through our csa, community supported agriculture shares.
While our bread is not certified organic, it is made with 100% organic grains.

I love my weekends at WLF. The only truly artisan breads and farmstead cheeses in a beautiful country setting.

"We bought some cream cheese and a baguette from the Ann Arbor Farmers Market. OMG! This is the FIRST time I've found a place where the baguette tasted like it came directly out of an oven in France. I highly recommend Lotus Farms. I've never been disappointed with any purchase."

"My eyes are definitely bigger than my stomach but I was also buying for a friend. I ended up purchasing two lemon cronuts, two chocolate cronuts, and a chocolate croissant. This was my first cronut experience ever so I had pretty high expectations. And boy, did it live up to my expectations!"
