We believe our success comes from a strong commitment to uphold the legacy and integrity of the Great Harvest brand. Great Harvest is about customer experience and the promise of phenomenal tasting products made with freshly-milled whole grain and pure and simple ingredients.
Whole Wheat Bread We love whole wheat bread. That's because our whole wheat bread, made with freshly ground flour and pure and simple ingredients, tastes incredible. There's just something about the way that nutty, rich taste of wheat combines with honey, yeast and salt that keeps customers coming back. It's what made us famous and continues to endear us to a broad array of happy customers.
Baking from scratch was the norm for our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents. They were concerned about making great-tasting food to nourish their family’s bodies. So is Great Harvest. Through the generations, our world has turned to cheaper, easier, less time-consuming methods of food preparation, losing the benefits of handmade, healthy baking and cooking. Not Great Harvest. We still believe in our elaborately long, traditional methods of bread making. We don’t rush it. Time allows our bread to naturally develop its exquisite flavor and texture, without the use of additives.

The secret to making phenomenal bread is in the wheat kernels. We know where every kernel comes from. That’s because we have been purchasing our premium whole wheat from family-owned farms for more than 30 years.
The farmers who produce our whole wheat know Great Harvest Park City is a tough client. Every year we test the crop for its protein content, moisture level, baking qualities and, of course, its distinctive taste. The high quality wheat we purchase allows us to bake without using artificial dough conditioners to boost loaf size.
Our growers know that the slightest variation in the wheat crop can completely change the flavor, size, and shape of a loaf. Consistency is the key. That's why we perform at least one hundred test bakes each year.
Great Harvest wheat grows on the arid high plains of Montana. This legendary region is known for growing some of the highest quality wheat in the world. Our farmers send their harvest samples to suppliers for preliminary testing. Test lots that meet specified criteria are then shipped to Great Harvest's research & development bakery in Dillon, Montana.
We mill each sample of wheat into fresh ground whole grain flour. Then we begin measuring, mixing, weighing, kneading, and baking. Understanding the subtle nuances of the wheat—what great dough should feel like, how it should bake, and ultimately how it should taste – is what distinguishes Great Harvest products.
