In April and May, we’re featuring the hidden gem of Oneota Co-op: Waving Grains Bakery.
Waving Grains was started by one of the original Co-op collective members, Jo Iverson. Five days a week Jo and her staff get up early in the morning and make bread the old fashioned way—using only high-quality ingredients and patience. There are no dough conditioners used, nothing artificial to speed up the time honored craft of shaping loaves out of dough and waiting for them to rise. Some breads, like the European sourdough even, use a classic starter made from mashed organic grapes.
Oneota Community Food Co-op is the only retail shop in Decorah where you can find bread made with ORGANIC FLOUR, and NO PRESERVATIVES or ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS.
