About

Novel Breads Co. is an artisan bread bakery where bread and books are beautifully combined.

Tucked in the undulating hills of Western Pennsylvania, this micro-bakery creates classic and novel flavor combinations  through the use of exceptional, unique and local ingredients.

Owned and operated by a single baker, Novel Breads Co. finds its inspiration in literature.

ABOUT THE BREAD

Novel Breads Co. strives to provide bread lovers of Western Pennsylvania with the highest quality and most flavorful breads by using naturally cultivated sourdough starter, by applying the long-fermentation process that nurtures and unveils layers and layers of flavor and by mixing everything by hand. 

Novel Breads Co. also ensures the quality of the breads by using locally milled flour and other ingredients produced on our regional farms.

ABOUT THE BOOKS

Novel Breads Co. brings together two of life's pleasures by creating breads inspired directly from books.

As a voracious reader, Novel Breads owner, Heather Sprague, finds names, passages and quotes from the books she reads and then later bequeaths them to the breads.

By combining the literary with the culinary, Novel Breads Co. aims to generate an experience for customers that is unlike any other.

DEFINING LOCAL

Defining what it means to shop locally isn't as simple as it would seem as each person perceives "local" in very different ways. At Novel Breads Co., however, I choose to define "local" as purchasing ingredients made and/or distributed within a 100-mile radius of where Novel Breads' creations are baked.

While this concept is not new or novel, it continues to be relevant. By shopping locally, we are stimulating local economies, fostering relationships with farmers and small business owners, and putting money back into our communities. When you shop at Novel Breads Co., you too, are contributing to this thriving web.

CUSTOMER TESTIMONIAL

Dear Heather,

On Sunday, I stopped by The Enchanted Olive for a bottle of olive oil, and left with that and some of your bread - Milk Buds and the Ricotta Sourdough. 

Sunday evening I had  a Milk Buds roll with a nice glass of rose wine.  It was wonderful!  Tonight I had the sourdough with a bowl of homemade chicken noodle soup - equally wonderful. 

As I told you on Sunday, I love good bread, and your bread is simply terrific!  I’m passing your business information on to my friends who live in the Butler area and encouraging them to give your bread a try.  If they do, they won’t regret it!

Good luck with your business.  I’m looking forward to seeing you soon.
