Join the Great Harvest Team

We are the Great Harvest Bread Company and we are “Bread Heaven.” Not just a set of words but the bar we set for everything; we live by this mantra. We are defined, first and foremost by our core product, our bread. It is special and we do it right. From the very start when we hand select our wheat from the Golden Triangle of Montana, the best wheat source on earth. To the time that wheat arrives, at locally-owned stores, where it will be stone milled into fresh flour on-site then baked into phenomenal breads and goodies every day from scratch. We continue to do it right until the special moment when our fresh baked goods are cheerfully passed over the counter to our customers — who become lifelong friends of Great Harvest. This is... Bread. The Way it ought to be.
