ABOUT US

A Fresh Start


This Great Harvest Bread Co. in Charlottesville is a dream come true — our dream! Our passion for great tasting, nutritious bread, and our desire to run a community-based business, led us to Great Harvest. They have been making great bread for communities across the U.S. for over 30 years.

Our Great Harvest looks like no other Great Harvest out there. We operate under a “Freedom Franchise.” The “Freedom” part means that we get to run our business in a way that meets our community’s unique needs. The “Franchise” part gives us access to the recipes and processes that Great Harvest has continuously improved for over three decades. The result is breads and sweets that will knock your socks off!

With over 30 years of experience in the food business in Western Pennsylvania, Michael and Aileen are excited to continue their passion of creating healthy foods in Charlottesville, Virginia.  Join us in the bakery cafe to share friendship, smiles, and a warm slice of heavenly bread!
Thanks for stopping by, we’re glad you came
