Winter Schedule 2019

Hurray for October! We are reveling in the abundance of fruit, wondrous clouds and cool breezes, and are looking forward to the sweetness brought by the first frost. It’s so hard to say goodbye to summer (and what a summer it was!), but with the cold comes so many other opportunities. Thank you for all your support through the seasons–we are so grateful to continue to be able to bake for you and your loved ones.

This week we are taking a tiny break to let our team have a little breather–we will be closed on Saturday October 5th.

We will re-open on October 8th, with our winter schedule. It is the same as last year. Please call or email us if you have questions. Thank you!

And check out our locations page for more info on where to find us.

With love and appreciation,

Lydia, Tim and the TH Crew

Winter Schedule 2018


Hello dear Tinder Hearth supporters-

This is just a little note to catch you all up on our winter plans. This season we have decided to significantly change our schedule: we are decreasing our baking days and outlets in an attempt to make the off-season more sustainable for the business. It is a difficult decision to make for multiple reasons, but especially because it will make the bread and pastries less available for you. We are so grateful for all of your support through the years, and look forward to many more years of serving you!

-> We WILL be making Thanksgiving Special Breads, we will post the menu soon! <-

Bread: We will be doing a full bake of all our regular loaves on Saturdays only. We will deliver bread to locations in Deer Isle, Blue Hill, and Ellsworth (see below for details). Also, don’t miss out on the two winter farmers’ market we attend on Saturdays, in Blue Hill and Belfast. They are both extraordinary.

Are you the type of person who buys bread a few times a week? May we suggest you get double on Saturday, and throw some into the freezer for later in the week. Some folks rave about slicing it up before freezing, so they can easily take out just what they need. And, if your bread is older than a couple days, we always recommend sprinkling a little water on the crust before it hits the toaster. Hard bread = good bread, if you rehydrate!

Pastry: We will be baking pastries on Wednesdays and Saturdays. They will be available at the same locations as the bread.

Pizza: We’re sticking with tried-and-true Tuesday nights. Call us up and order a pie for take out or enjoy it in the family-style close-but-cozy bakery seating. 5-8PM. We’ll have drinks, winter salads, and dessert on the menu all season.
