Pure & Simple OriginsFor more than 30 years, whole grains have been at the center of Great Harvest’scommitment to healthy living. The essence of our company hasn’t changed since ourfounders discovered the wonder of Montana wheat and opened the first GreatHarvest Bread Co. in Great Falls in 1976.Today, the home office is located in Dillon, Montana, near the heart of the world’sbest wheat-growing region. Great Harvest has more than 220 bakeries locatedthroughout 43 states.
IT DOESN’T GET ANY FRESHER THAN THIS!
Great Harvest grinds premium, high-protein wheat kernels daily into fresh and flavorful
whole grain products within 48 hours. The result is fantastic tasting and nutrient-rich
breads and sweets.
FORGET ABOUT ADDITIVES, PRESERVATIVES OR DOUGH CONDITIONERS
Products as fresh as ours don’t need them. Our bread is guaranteed to stay fresh for
seven to 10 days. We believe fresh tastes amazing and ingredients closest to nature
are best. Grain that has been processed, refined, bleached and stripped of its natural
bran and oils loses vital nutrients, fiber and flavor.
WHOLE GRAINS ARE LIFE ENHANCING
Great Harvest bread is renowned for its amazing taste and life-enhancing qualities. Whole
grains are fundamental to a healthy diet and active lifestyle. In fact, the USDA Dietary
Guidelines recommend we eat three servings of whole grains every day.
Our whole grain breads provide ‘good carbs’
Good carbs, unlike “empty carbs,” take longer to digest, releasing natural sugars gradually,
for a steady source of strength and vitality. Good carbs also are rich in fiber and
satisfy our hunger, making us feel fuller longer. In addition, good carbs are full of
vitamins, trace minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals, which protect against heart
disease, some forms of cancer and Type-2 diabetes.
A community of family-owned bakeries
Being a part of the Great Harvest family of bakery owners is more than just a job – it’s a
whole way of life, and a whole lot of fun. Our bakery owners are passionate about their
craft, excited about healthy living and devoted to their customers. They enjoy the
freedom of creating their own community-based enterprise, backed by the support of a
company whose practices have proven their value for more than three decades.
