OUR STORY

The Old-fashioned farmhouse bakery streetsign

Situated at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains and housed in a restored 1832 FarmHouse, you will find our small batch bakery and gift shop, featuring old-fashioned southern poundcakes!

Starting at small local farmers markets and festivals to now having the perfect location for you to visit, we hope you stop by and sample our freshly baked poundcakes in a variety of seasonal flavors as well as our biscotti, granola, homemade cookies, cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, and even homemade breads.  We also carry locally roasted coffee, homemade hot chocolate mix, locally crafted teas, soy candles, gourmet popcorn, and more! 

For many here in the South pound cake is a wonderful memory instilled by our Grandmothers.  We offer the original tried and true sour cream poundcake in "Grandma's Buttery Vanilla" as well as our Luscious Lemon PoundCake that was a 2019 Flavor of Georgia Finalist!  But that is just the beginning, we have added several more flavors including our Outlander Inspired cake, "The Tipsy Laird".  

All of our baked goods are made from scratch just like Grandma made using the finest ingredients and sourcing local whenever possible.  From the high quality King Arthur Flour (unbleached and certified non-gmo), pure cane sugar, real butter, and Nielsen Massey Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla to the fresh eggs.  We rotate our flavors for the seasons and use what is freshest at the time.  Simple ingredients for cakes that are lovingly baked in small batches!    

 

 Whether you are a local Habersham area resident or visiting our beautiful area, please stop by for a visit, walk up the path to the front porch where you can relax in one of the rocking chairs and step through the front door and back in time and embrace the aromas of homemade goodness and the feel of comfort that only a Grandma's kitchen can offer!
