In the Press
We are so humbled that Peach County's Leader Tribune Newspaper featured an article about our new bakery on the cover this week.
Better Ingredients! Better Taste!
We are a family-owned artisan bakery and natural farmstand in Fort Valley, Georgia. We handcraft our baked pastries and sweet delights from scratch using our own natural sweetener free from cane sugar.
Giving up cane sugar doesn't mean giving up all of life's delicious moments. Our bakers craft cakes, pies, cookies, and pastries using the finest quality ingredients that will remind you of the good old days when food was just good. Even better our treats will not spike your blood sugar, raise your insulin, knock you out of ketosis, or cause inflammation. We use organic superfine almond flour, coconut flour, and our very own natural sweetener blend Momma's Shuga! Our gluten free products are made with non-grain flours as well. ❤
Our Baked Goods are 0% Sugar BUT... 100% Sweetness
We use Momma's Shuga, our OWN natural sweetener blend. No funky aftertaste. No artificial sweeteners.
Our family is committed to providing our community with access to fresh fruits, vegetables, and baked goods free from harmful chemicals and preservatives.
No harmful pesticides or herbicides
Healthy people are a result of healthy food. We grow using natural and sustainable methods to provide the best foods to our community.

Just Too Much Sugar
According to recent data, the average American child consumes almost 152 pounds of sugar in one year!
Increased sugar levels tend to increase resistance to insulin, a hormone which is vital for brain functioning through blood sugar control. Extreme levels of sugar in children can cause interference with neurotransmitters responsible for keeping moods stable. This often leads to depression and anxiety in children.
My absolute favorite is the sweet and spicy chicken glaze. Not too spicy, not too sweet...just right. My next favorites, the fruit jams.
I love knowing they are made with love💖
Our favorite pie is blueberry. Our pie tasted homemade and
arrived packed perfectly with no damage. We would definitely order again from this bakery.
