Elden and I still like Dave Hanlon’s homemade bread the very best, but Duluth’s Best Bread has been making some Stone’s Throw Farm members (and their farmer) very happy each week late this season. Yesterday we got our first delivery of their croissants, and I think I saw some drool out there on the porch where farm members pick up their shares.

Our CSA season is ending next week, so I was happy to see via the DNT that I can pick up a few loaves at the DBB bakery when I need good bread this winter. (Psst, that means you Duluthians can get it, too.)

Starting last week, they opened their doors to the public, but only on Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., selling their 1- and 2-pound sourdough bread loaves for $4.50 and $7, $1 off the usual price, and selling croissants for $3, a 50-cent discount.

But their focus is not on having a retail store.

“It’s not our goal at all to have people come in and buy,” said Robert Lillegard, 29, a freelance food writer who wrote “The Duluth Grill Cookbook.” “It’s to make good-quality bread and get it out to people where they are.”

They count Perk Place, Alakef Cup, the Whole Foods Co-op and Lake Avenue Cafe in Duluth and Wednesday Bakery in Superior as among their customers. They also sell their loaves through local farmers markets and Stones Throw Farm, a community-supported agriculture program.

“We’re slowly introducing it to places that appreciate it,” Robert said. “People really like it. If there’s an office with at least 10 people who want it, we’ll make deliveries to offices.”

Band together, folks!
