What an exciting day! It sounds like you guys are having tons of fun at the bakery. That was so cute of the little boy to bring in a teddy for Baby KERF! I can’t believe it’s already been a whole year since you and Matt started the whole Great Harvest adventure. Congrats!

omg!! so exciting! I want a cookie, cinnamon bun, and loaf of bread from your shop so bad!!! Here’s to many MANY more years to come!!


10 Emily @ Life on Food June 2, 2012 at 2:16 pm

It has been a year already? Goodness time flies. You just keep baking up tons of new goodies. Wish I was close enough to snag a cookie.


11 Roxanne June 2, 2012 at 2:26 pm

Send one of your free cookies to me, I’ll pay COD!


12 Allison @ Can't Wait For Breakfast June 2, 2012 at 2:52 pm

Just had sardines for lunch for the first time! I always see you eating them on your blog – so I thought it was time to try them out – They were pretty good!

14 Sana June 2, 2012 at 3:03 pm

Happy 1 Year to the bakery! I’m sure it feels great to see that all of your hard work has paid off for the last year. :)


16 Averie @ Averie Cooks June 2, 2012 at 4:16 pm

18 Chelsea @ Designs on Dinner June 2, 2012 at 5:09 pm

Happy Anniversaries! I love that t-shirt “It’s nice to be kneaded;” I loved to make bread puns when my husband was working at Breadsmith. :)


19 Keeley June 2, 2012 at 5:29 pm

Hope people enjoyed the Wild Squirrel!! Happy Anniversary :)


20 Susan H. @ The Food Allergy Chronicles June 2, 2012 at 6:15 pm

Congradulations on your first year! Looks like so much fun! Wish I could just ‘pop’ on over and participate but alas, there are too many kilometers between to travel! :( Enjoy your day!


21 Lisa (bakebikeblog) June 2, 2012 at 6:24 pm



22 Heather June 2, 2012 at 6:25 pm

Amazing how time flies! Congratulations. We were just at our local GH today. Husband is 2 cookies in already! Heh.


23 Angela @ Happy Fit Mama June 2, 2012 at 6:32 pm

Congrats on one year! Looks like it was a fun but very tiring day!


24 [email protected] June 2, 2012 at 6:42 pm

Congrats Kath on 1 year! That went by fast!~


25 Angel7 June 2, 2012 at 8:32 pm

What a cute lil’ bear to add to your bear collection! Wonder what his name will be? :) What about Dakota, since he is from your bakers?


26 KathEats June 2, 2012 at 8:39 pm

That’s a wonderful name :)


27 lorin June 2, 2012 at 8:45 pm

Oh yum! I’m curious, what do you think your blogging will be like once the baby comes? Takin a break from it?


28 KathEats June 2, 2012 at 9:10 pm

My hope is to keep KERF going as usual – it shouldn’t be toooo hard since I have to eat. I think the meals will be more in action and less set up.

BERF will probably become mostly a baby photo blog with posts written when I have time :)


29 Bea June 2, 2012 at 8:55 pm

Congrats on your successful year. I’m sure there will be many more to come. I wish I lived closer, I’d be there in a snap for some of those cinna buns. Drewl.


30 Mom June 2, 2012 at 9:07 pm

I hope the bears will be welcoming to the new bear!


31 Melissa June 2, 2012 at 9:16 pm

Congratulations on the 1st anniversary!


32 Mary Ann June 2, 2012 at 9:54 pm

congratulations on both anniversaries! beautiful post!


33 Cait's Plate June 2, 2012 at 10:02 pm

I can’t believe it’s been a year! It feels like it was just yesterday you guys were starting this journey! Congrats, congrats, congrats! So well deserved – I’m sure it will be another year filled of award-winning bread :)


34 Julia H. @ Going Gulia June 2, 2012 at 10:36 pm

Loving that “It’s nice to be kneaded” shirt! Oh bread jokes. They never get old.


35 Lexi @ You, Me, & A World to See June 3, 2012 at 12:05 am

Cookies are the best ending to just about everything–a night, 1 year of business, etc. Well then again, they’re a great beginning too 😉


36 Ashley @ Hudson on the Potomac June 4, 2012 at 11:57 am

I’m always so jealous of your pimento cheese sandwiches!!! Happy GH Anniversary!


37 Ginger G. June 4, 2012 at 9:05 pm

Your sandwiches always look so delicious! I’m hate that the Great Harvests here (Raleigh & Cary, NC) don’t offer anything like them :(


38 Kate April 28, 2013 at 4:11 am

Hi Kath-
Just realized there is a Great Harvest Bread right near me in MA!! Do you have a suggestion for your favorite or “healthiest” bread? It seems they have a very similar menu to your Great Harvest! Can’t wait to go!



39 KathEats April 28, 2013 at 6:16 am

Look for flax oat Bran… That’s our Cville Crunch! Or High Five, Dakota.
