I am Lisa Gardner of Gardnerís Harvest Bread. I have always had a love of baking and learned to bake with my mother when I was younger. Some of my recipes are old family favorites, and almost all I have put my own twist on. I started my bread business in 2009 selling home baked bread to my friends and neighbors as a way to earn a little cash on the side. In 2010 and 2011 I sold my Bread , Granola and other treats at a couple small farmers markets and vendor fairs. In 2011 I got my Home Foods License so I could Sell my Bread and Cookies in a couple small stores in the Des Moines area. It has been a fun journey and I am slowly gaining some business sense in the process..
I Live in Central Des Moines though I am not Native to the area I have lived In Iowa for the last 17 years. I am the proud mother of two young boys who help me with my labeling and sometimes help manning my booths as farmers markets. My younger son has even helped with the development of a recipe. (we named after him)

Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
I make everything from scratch.I do not use any preservatives in my bread. My goal is always that things taste good I try to have some healthy options as well. All of my Breads are shaped by hand. My cookies are Hand Decorated.
I offer a few Grain free or Wheat free items. I myself can not eat wheat. That being said I do not have a dedicated Gluten free Kitchen. I take great care to avoid cross contamination. Due to the fact gluten can float in the air like asbestos I can not Guarantee Gluten Free.
The Para-cord Bracelets and Water Bottle Holders are made from Para-cord that is Made in the USA
