A Fresh Start

Your bakery owners are
Liz Pierce & Jim Guthrie

As the chef of the house - Jim mixes his passion for food with a business that sells great-tasting healthy products.  It makes Jim's day to see customers smile when they taste the breads & sweets made fresh daily.

Liz’ interest in food comes from her travels all over the world for business; her passion for great bread comes from a college year in Paris, where she visited bakeries every weekend. Luckily for Jim - she didn't stay in Paris and open a bakery; instead she returned to the US, where she met Jim in Southern California.

In 2014 they moved to New Mexico to begin a new adventure; where they can contribute to their community; enjoy the outdoors; and pursue their love of great bread and friendship.

Our Bakery has been a part of the Albuquerque Community since June 1989.   We're proud to continue the tradition of a locally-owned Bakery that produces the highest quality handmade products using the best ingredients available, with no preservatives and no shortcuts.    

New Sandwiches...
Your locally owned Great Harvest Bakery now offers fresh-made Sandwiches that feature our whole-grain breads as well as house-made spreads and sauces.

Familiar Faces and Products...
The Whole Grain, Artisan, and Gluten-free Breads and assorted Sweets (Muffins, Scones, Bars etc.) you love have not changed. Our commitment to our Products, Customers, and Employees remains as strong as ever.

You will still see the same hand-made Whole-Grain & Artisan Breads you expect, along with a variety of familiar Sweets choices, served by friendly & familiar faces every day.

Fun New Stuff...
At the same time you can expect to see Liz & Jim introduce new items every now and then, both as specials and regular additions to the menu. An example:.

     Our Baker's Choice Bread every Friday & Saturday (except for Holiday Weekends which typically have their own Special Items). Check our Specials Page, watch the bakery Facebook page and look for the Constant Contact email update each week to learn what will be made the next Friday & Saturday. If you don't get the email, sign up for our mailing list.
