Seedy Salt Bread!

YES! It’s true; we will have “that” bread!  Lots of you have been asking, so I’m very excited to confirm it is true.  It’s now called Salt Of The Earth, "Home of the original Seedy Salt bread" and is still be made by Mari and Chris Reijmerink.  Mari and Chirs with the help of their daughter Hazel also have an organic fruit farm called Kismet Organics.

Mari and Chris have a very interesting story. They met in the Netherlands working/volunteering at a non-profit farm that blends social outreach with outdoor activities and farm life.  When returning to the states for a visit they decided to stay, marry, and farm. Their farm is located in Fennville and started with a 50-year-old pear orchard that they spent 2 years renovating. Now they have expanded to include many fruits: strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, peaches, currents, gooseberries, and heirloom tomatoes.

  1. that "seedy" salt bread sounds wonderful. We
    are impressed with all the great resources
    you have found to use in the market! I have
    a friend that makes pies at our local Farmer's
    Market here and she uses all the fruits men-
    tioned above for her pies. I am going to for-
    ward a copy of this email to her - she is one
    of the girls that you met in Savannah on our
    trip - her name is Sarah Warnes. Sarah has
    a lake cottage at Lake James (northern IN)
    by Angola and she might just check out your
    market for her fruit - she is always looking
    for healthy things!!
