The story of Silver Hills Sprouted Bakery is as organic and natural as the ingredients we use in our breads and bagels.
Our story began in 1984 at the Silver Hills Guest House, a wellness resort quietly tucked away in the beautiful and serene Okanagan Valley of British Columbia. Rooted in a philosophy of holistic, healthy living, guests to the resort are taught the benefits of positive lifestyle choices supplemented by a vegan-friendly diet as a means of promoting health and achieving a higher quality of life.
Soon after opening its doors, the resort staff discovered they were unable to find wholesome, all-natural bread that aligned with their dietary values. Fortunately, Brad Brousson, the soon to be co-founder of Silver Hills Bakery, was on staff at the time. When he was young, his mother had taught him the craft of baking bread using sprouted grains, and as a result Silver Hills decided to make its own unique sprouted bread.
Instead of grinding grains into flour, the bread was made from sprouted organic whole grains. This naturally retained all of the life-giving nutrition of the entire living kernel to create delicious, wholesome bread that was packed full of fibre and protein, while also containing no dairy, oil, artificial preservatives or additives of any kind.
After experiencing this healthy and delicious new bread, resort guests wanted to continue to enjoy it after returning home, and share their discovery with friends and family. The demand for our organic sprouted bread only grew from there.
To this day we have two simple goals: bake wholesome, great tasting bread and inspire healthier living through healthier choices.
