Baking without a storefront
Baking without a storefront.
Teton River Baking, a specialty baking business, has been operated by Rick and Carol Keats from their home at 15 Fifth Ave. N.E., in Choteau, US, since last year. They sell a variety of breads, loaf and free form as well as artisan breads and specialty breads like chocolate braids. “We do a lot of our recipes whole wheat as we feel it is healthier than other flours,” Rick said. “We offer several different cinnamon-type rolls with a variety of icings and toppings”. Scones are one of their best sellers. “We work hard at doing high-end scones, like pumpkin, cranberry pecan, ginger apricot and chocolate hazelnut,” he added.
Unlike a traditional business, Teton River Baking doesn’t have a store front. They operate under the guidelines of the state’s Cottage Food Industry law. This allows individuals to bake and sell out of their own homes and requires approval of recipes, labels and allergens on all the products. They bake once a week, normally Tuesdays, with the scheduled pick-up time between 4:30 and 6 p.m. Their clients are, for the most part, in their 40s on up to senior citizens, who seem to greatly enjoy the homemade products, and watch for bake days and ordering options on the Teton Facebook page.
