Open Hearts Bakery

Open Hearts Bakery is located in St. Matthews United Methodist Church, Morganton, NC.  They bake seven flavors of Sourdough Bread; plain, whole wheat, raisin cinnamon, cheese, cheese/onion/garlic, Jalapeno/cheese/onion/garlic and Spicy/cheese/onion/ garlic and also sell cakes, sweet breads, pies, tarts, and muffins.

They grow some of the ingredients used in the bread and the Community Garden located at their church is growing the peppers to use in the bread. They also are beginning to grow strawberries and blueberries for the bakery but are purchasing fruit from local growers.

They have been in the business for six years and also sell at the Hickory Farmers’ Market and on Fridays at their church.

Up until this year, all workers have been volunteers.  Beginning June 1, they are now employing 3 people part time.
