Origin Breads is a small bakery in Madison, WI. Owner and baker, Kirk Smock, is slowly building this business on the experience of 11 years of ardent home baking. His baking obsession began in 2005 while living in Guyana and his fermentation and baking skills were fine-tuned while living in Mozambique. What began as a one-man show now also includes a couple of additional bakers who are essential to daily operations. Kirk really stands behind his product and sources the best ingredients possible. It's kind of amazing what he puts into his bread to be honest.
