A second generation baker, Oliver Hofer is passionate about his art. Being a baker, however, is not always easy. The days start at 3AM and end in the afternoon. But the job is very rewarding. Oliver is very proud to be able to offer his customers fresh, healthy and refined products. His breads are sugar-free, preservative-free and contain only organic ingredients that are particularly sought-after by his customers. Rich in grains and nutrients, traditional German bread is different from the breads produced in industrial bakeries and found in supermarkets, which are often very sweet and therefore less healthy. Oliver notes that the new generation of young farmers and restaurateurs in New Brunswick are very concerned about the quality and origin of the products they offer their customers. This return to traditional values is encouraging collaboration among several regional producers and restaurateurs who share the same philosophy on healthy, local food. This may explain why the bakery has become the bread supplier for many local restaurants and cafés in the Greater Moncton area.

That is the reason they moved to New Brunswick in 2003. This Maritime province, with its rolling hills and rural charm, reminds him of southern Germany, especially his native Heidenheim in Baden-Württemberg.
The bakery is open from Tuesday to Friday throughout the year. The products are also on sale at the Dieppe Market on Fridays and Saturdays.
