Mama Bakes Bread

Beautifully made artisan breads crafted with a focus on traditional techniques

Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; and good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts
— James Beard

Welcome to Mama Bakes Bread, a website dedicated to my home microbakery based out of Lander, Wyoming.

I’m Elena, lover of food, mother to 3, and owner/manager/baker of Mama Bakes Bread. I began baking out of my home oven using dutch ovens in 2013 and sold a few loaves on a whim to buy some groceries. Over the years I began to frequent our local Market the Lander Valley Farmer’s Market and became known as “The Bread Lady”, a title I proudly hold!

In April 2017, with the help of my incredibly supportive community, I launched a successful Kickstarter campaign and was able to buy a RofcoB40 Bread oven. This European stone oven has allowed me to continue to create authentic sourdough bread with a rustic feel and meet the growing demand of my community and beyond.

Nutrition, quality and community are the cornerstones of my business and I am thrilled to be doing this labor of love.
