Journeyman’s “bread by subscription” model promotes a direct relationship between the consumer and the baker. It also minimizes waste by producing only the exact number of loaves needed on a daily basis. A subscription guarantees you one loaf of bread per week for a period of four (4) weeks, delivered to your home. You can choose from breads that are great for sandwiches, breads that are perfect for breakfast, or select "Baker's Choice" and be surprised every week!
You may purchase a one-time subscription to try out our service (you are billed just once) or you may purchase a subscription that automatically renews at the end of each four-week cycle, ensuring non-stop delivery of fresh bread every week. If you are going to be away and want to skip a week or two, just let us know in advance and we're happy to adjust your subscription. Our online ordering system allows you to edit or cancel your subscription at any time.
Delivery is available in many parts of Westchester and lower Putnam counties. However, please call or email us if you live south of Hartsdale. Deliveries are made every Friday between 9 AM and 6 PM. Please be sure to specify a drop-off location when placing your online order (e.g., inside the front door, etc.).

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Isn't your bread a bit on the expensive side?
Journeyman is committed to using the finest ingredients whenever possible. Our number one expense is the type of flour we use (organic, milled in New York State). A 50 lb. bag costs $50, compared with $12 for a bag of generic-brand flour. A delivery charge is included in the price of the bread to cover our fuel and vehicle maintenance costs.
How do I keep my bread fresh?
We recommend keeping bread on the kitchen counter in the bag in which it was delivered. Placing bread in the refrigerator is not recommended.
Can I freeze my bread?
Absolutely. Remove the bread from the bag and place in a tightly sealed plastic bag with as much air removed as possible. (Many people slice the bread in advance and then take one or two slices out of the freezer when they're preparing a sandwich or toast.) If bread is wrapped tightly, it will last indefinitely in the freezer.
Can I crisp up my bread?
To revive a crispy crust, place the bread in a 250-degree oven for 15 minutes.
