Bloom has grown from a combination of desire and education; the desire for good food and an in-depth, informal education of what ‘good’ means. At Bloom you’ll find food that is good in more than taste (though there’s plenty of that!). It’s good for our neighboring farmers who sell us most of the ingredients, good for the co-ops halfway around the world who get a fair deal for our tea, chocolate, and coffee, and good for our soil and rivers because it’s grown without synthetic chemicals. It’s good for our community because most of your dollars spent at Bloom will stay local. What goes around comes around, which is why we try to put out as much good as we can, with full faith that you’ll bring it back. So thanks in advance for coming in to see us and for all the good you bring.

I wasn’t born like this. My parents were not flower children. I did not grow up on a farm. And I used to be able to go to the grocery store without examining ingredient labels. Who I am now and what I believe in has been a building process. Piece by piece I have stacked one bit of knowledge on top of another. I like to think that the stack has formed Bloom Bake Shop and, in a way, it really has. After all, the ingredients that went in to this shop were chosen with the same care that we put in to choosing the ingredients of our sweet treats.

It's what's on the inside that counts. Right? Perhaps I took the 'sugar and spice and everything nice' clause a bit too seriously, but I can't help but feel that the 'nice' part has been severely underrated. Pesticides, synthetic chemicals, irradiation, growth hormones, and antibiotics don't sound nice to me, so I decided to leave them out of our Bloom treats.
