Hello everyone! We are Steve and Gail Arnold, longtime Linden Hills residents and the new owners of the Minneapolis Great Harvest Bakery. The previous owners, Sally and Tom, opened this bakery in Linden Hills in 1982. Since then, they have brought you the freshest handmade bread possible, while generously serving the community. Cheers to Sally and Tom for their great success in building an icon in Linden Hills!
After more than 31 years, Sally and Tom decided to move on to new adventures. We are the honored family, from a short walk away, who are so blessed to continue their great work. We are grateful for this opportunity and appreciate the trust that Sally and Tom have instilled in us. Steve has been the afternoon manager for 13 years, and so many of you already know him well. Our commitment to this neighborhood runs deep and we look forward to continuing to serve you for years to come.
We are also thankful that all (and we mean ALL) of the hardworking and dedicated employees who have been such an important part of the bakery will continue to work by our side. Involvement in our community is a focus of our business and we are happy to provide bread for fundraisers, charity dinners and other community events.
Baking high quality whole grain breads, healthy living, contributing to the community and being your local bread bakery are our passions. We promise to continue the tradition of bringing you the most phenomenal bread you will ever taste!
Great Harvest uses pure, simple ingredients and never adds preservatives. Everything is baked from scratch, onsite, and 100% whole wheat flour is stone-milled right here every day. As the world continues down the path of cheaper, easier, less time-consuming bread-making methods, the handmade, healthy elements of baking have been tossed aside too. Not at Great Harvest. We take our time and believe in elaborate, traditional methods, because only then will your bread naturally develop the exquisite flavor and texture you cherish and have come to expect. One thing is for certain, Great Harvest bread is truly one of a kind. It's simple. Handmade. Wholesome. Tasty. The way bread ought to be.
Please come in and enjoy a slice of hot bread, straight from the oven, and the warm familiar surroundings at your family-owned and operated neighborhood Great Harvest. We look forward to meeting and serving you bread the way it ought to be!
Steve & Gail Arnold
