About this project

Hi! My name is Nika and I am Breadnik, a one-person organic artisan bakery in the Sierra Nevada Foothills.

Every day I go to work to bake my bread thinking about how to make it even more enjoyable for my customers and more fun for me.

The way I go about it is by making, among other things, what I call "Bread of the Month" – a bread that incorporates seasonal fruits or veggies grown in our beautiful NevadaCounty. It changes every month as we go through the seasons. I work closely with local farmers to obtain the best ingredients and to show-case their products in my bread.

I love what I do, and I think my passion comes through in my bread. It seems to be widely appreciated, so much so that I find myself in urgent need to expand, to buy new equipment, new supplies, and to make improvements to my commercial kitchen that would allow me to bring in one more baker. That is why I am now asking for your help.

I want to continue growing and supplying bread to fill the needs of the local community.

In exchange I am offering to you what I do best – food. If you are a local or domestic backer, I will provide bread, other delicious things and, for larger local donations, a dinner for two that I will cook and serve taking into account your preferences and dislikes.

To international bakers I can not offer bread, sorry. I don't think it can survive the shipping. But I will send you my own home-made fruit preserves. We can also discuss other options, I am very flexible.

This project is very important to me. It will allow me to continue to do what I love and what I also believe makes a world a little nicer place. Well, at least a nicer-smelling and tasting place.

Thank you for your attention and your support
