Founded in 1993, The Bread Bakers Guild of America is a non-profit alliance of professional bakers, farmers, millers, suppliers, educators, students, home bakers, technical experts, and bakery owners and managers.

Our Artisan Baking Community is a community who work together to support the principle and the practice of producing the highest quality baked goods. Our members are a funky, iconoclastic, independent, creative and colorful group who value and promote baking education and thrive on the lively exchange of ideas.

The Guild is today a community of more than 1,400 members from across the United States and around the world. The Guild counts among its membership both a veritable “Who’s Who” of celebrated artisan bakers, as well as the next generation of bakers.

The Bread Bakers Guild of America has dedicated itself to advancing the artisan baking profession. The Guild is well known in the baking community as the go-to educational resource for substantive, accurate information on the craft of making bread. If you want to know how to make incomparable bread—mix it, ferment it, shape it, bake it and sell it, you've come to the right place. The materials and activities generated by The Guild are available nowhere else! They represent the cutting edge in providing the tools needed to produce the highest quality bread products.
