Who we are and what we're up to

Hello Colorado!

Allow us to introduce ourselves. We are the wife and husband duo of Ashley Overstreet and Paul Bonneville that have called Lafayette home for more than ten years now.

We are a home-based, cottage food bakery focused on sourdough breads and baked goods featuring regional ancient, heritage and heirloom grains.

We mill flour fresh for all of our baked goods to showcase the flavor, sustainability, and nutrition of whole grains.

How We Got Started Baking

When people ask how we got started (another question we’ve gotten lately), we’re never quite sure how to answer. 

Baking has always been part of our relationship as we’ve made pizza and bread as long as we’ve been together. For Paul, baking goes back to his teenage years working at local pizza places in Massachusetts. Ashley learned to make bread, cinnamon rolls, and pies, among other things, from her grandmother, Ruby. She also worked at a restaurant during her teenage and college years and learned to make hot rolls. Lots and lots of hot rolls. 

As adults, baking became the antidote to sitting behind the computer working on longer digital projects. During the pandemic, Ashley took an online course at the University of Colorado - Colorado Springs called Grain School, and that’s where the idea for Daily Grains really came from. We originally thought we’d do something digital with our learnings to help build out the marketplace and infrastructure for local grains, and the work we did there continues through our partnership with the Colorado Grain Chain, which we discussed in a previous newsletter. We’ll be working with them for the next three years through a couple of grants to continue building out the Grain Exchange Marketplace.
