Bread Story

A many things have transpired in history over the sharing, slicing and breaking of bread.

I had a conversation with a friend in 2011 — she shared that she’d tossed a piece of bread in the yard for the birds. A week later, she noticed the birds didn’t eat the mass-produced, store-bought bread. And guess what, the bread didn’t deteriorate, which means it was chocked with preservatives. My immediate inner thought was, why should I eat that bread if even a birdy won’t? Food is to be fresh with nutrients; and yes, it should spoil when not eaten in a timely manner.
That’s when I started baking. I baked every kind of bread I was confident enough to try. What did I do with five years of baking bread — I gave it all away. To anyone who might be interested in eating preservative-free bread — wheat bread, honey wheat, oatmeal, rye, zucchini, banana nut, organic, spelt, carrot, chocolate, white.
Finally in 2015 — Tennesseans and Ohioans said, we refuse to let you give us bread anymore. We will buy it from you. It’s the best bread we’ve ever tasted. I said no, they said yes; I said no, and they eventually won. And now we have, Tennessee Naturals™ Sourdough Bread.

Tennessee Naturals Vision

Now, you see rolling green hills that’s a native Tennessee view. You’ve been so gracious to support Tennessee Naturals™. Your purchases ensure this picture of rolling hills will be converted into a Tennessee, preservative-free bread bakehouse. We accept donations of land, buildings, equipment, stock and other in-kind items to build this legacy. Keep chewing, keep sharing this Web site, keep sharing the bread and keep exercising, as well.

Whether you’re 20, 40, 60 or 80, the team here at Tennessee Naturals Sourdough Bread encourages you to think about planning your legacy of goodwill and providing valuable lessons to your family in how to properly steward what’s been entrusted to you. Careful planning ensures wishes are completed with without unexpected tax liabilities.

Why is the bakehouse baking preservative-free sourdough bread and soups? To fund the vision. What’s the vision? Leaders Guest House. What is Leaders Guest House?

The most taxed people are leaders — leaders in the home, leaders in the community, leaders in business, leaders in churches, leaders in synagogues, leaders in temples, leaders in governments, leaders in healthcare, retired leaders, leaders in entertainment, leaders in the legal field, leaders in music; and even the unsung, unknown leaders. What do we expressly know? That all leaders need to be restored and restituted on a continual basis. And that’s where Leaders Guest House emerges.

Leaders Guest House will be the premiere hospitality venue with the sole focus of allowing leaders around the United States and the world to rest. And of more importance, is, if each leader chooses – they can confidentially receive ministry services to be restored and restituted.

May we here at Tennessee Naturals™ overtly share, hospitality is our gift. Nothing else brings us joy than extending hospitality in the most exquisite form hospitality is available in. There’s no way you can come into our presence and not leave better than you came.
