Crafting quality artisan bread is a family tradition. August Fritsch started his baker apprenticeship in Germany in 1907. His son, Gustav Boehringer followed in his footsteps, obtaining his Master Baker certification in 1956. Gustav and his wife Brigitte took over his father’s bakery in 1957 and the bakery thrived over the next 25 years. In 1982, Gustav brought his family to Canada and continued baking his whole grain artisan breads. Now, more than 20 years after opening the first location in Unionville and the St. Lawrence Market, under third generation leadership, Stonemill's bread is available at major retailers and specialty stores in Ontario as well as select retailers across Canada and the United States.
