We purchased the Our Daily Bread bakery in 2012. It was named Augusta Bakery since everyone called it that anyway. Bob and Natalya are the owners, daughter Polina works there when she is not attending school. Bob was the 54th Certified Master Baker in the U.S.
We run the bakery as a mostly scratch bakery. It is what small town bakeries used to be, but are very rare and not common as they once were.
Bob enlisted in the Marine Corps in 1974. He spent 6 years as a Food Service Specialist. He later joined the Minnesota National Guard where he spent another 22 years. He Retired in 2017 as a Chief Warrant Officer 2, serving as the Brigade Command Food Advisor.
