We opened in 2011, but the story of Creswell Bakery started long before that. After graduating from the Culinary Institute of America in New York, Heidi Tunnell developed a love for the smell & science of yeast, baking, and fermentation. In 2006, “Farm Girl Kitchen” was started in her grandma’s house here in Creswell. Selling baked goods one day a week at the local farmer’s market, it was the start of something much bigger.
Heidi started catering, but her love of baking never went away. Still running a bakery one day a week to supplement the catering company, it eventually grew into the establishment that it is today. Starting as a passion project in a kitchen over 10 years ago, Creswell Bakery is now a destination known across the country.
