Company/organization description (<500 characters)

S. S. Sourdough is a first-generation veteran family owned home bakery, specializing in eclectic variety of sourdough products. We pride ourselves in our ground-up cultivation of a sourdough starter native to Salem, CT, and the use of high-quality ingredients to make a plant-based and preservative-free product custom to our patrons' requests.

In January, my wife Deanne and I exited the market to focus on our newborn son, continuing education, and to have time to experiment with new product ideas. Having perfected our routine for bulk production of our standard slicing loaves, we finalized a menu and ingredients list that meets our standards for quality and taste. Mid-year we successfully completed our first patron-ready artisan loaves, and by the end of 2019 had produced our first Belgian waffles.
