A new artisan shop, Heirloom Bakery is planning its grand opening on May 9-10 in Kansas City, Missouri. 

“Gathering together to bake and share a meal has been an essential part of our lives for generations,” the bakery’s owners Scott and Kate Meinke explain on their website. “At Heirloom Bakery & Hearth, we want to celebrate and preserve this experience by providing from-scratch fare in an inviting atmosphere. All of our baked goods are made fresh daily, using local and seasonal ingredients whenever possible. We find inspiration from what's growing locally, heritage recipes and the great stories that undoubtedly arise around the kitchen table. These are the heirlooms we treasure most.”

In 2004, Scott Meinke began baking professionally at Spring Mill Bread Co. in Washington, D.C., and in 2008 earned his BA in Art History at American University. It was in D.C. that same year that he met his future wife, Kate, a Midwestern girl with common roots in cooking and art. In 2013, they moved to Kansas City to open Heirloom Bakery & Hearth.

Breads are made with organic, stone-ground flour from Heartland Mill in Kansas.  Breads are baked each morning in small batches.
