Kalama Sourdough Bakery
I’m Robert Ahrens. I started Kalama Sourdough Bakery as a homeschooling project when I was 13. As
part of my curriculum, my parents wanted me to start a business. Since I already loved baking, I decided to
start a bakery. My Grandpa helped me build the bakery and my Mom taught me how to bake! I started out
by selling 10 loaves a week in our downtown Kalama Shopping Center. I then started selling at local
Farmers Markets during the summer. I loved it!
Since then, I’ve grown my business ethically and responsibly, always looking to local suppliers first. I
believe we have to work together as a community to keep the things we eat local! Our bread is not a standard
loaf of white bread. It is a true sourdough. The only ingredients in our Artisan Loaf are Flour, Water, Salt and
Sourdough Starter. I use an old-world, three-day method of fermenting and proofing the dough until it’s just
right. Then we bake it and deliver it out to customers.
Now, 11 years later you can now find our
breads from Vancouver to Tacoma!
