With a few ingredients and a little time, you can make the most delicious farmhouse fresh bread that will taste better than anything store-bought!
‘Farm to Fork’
I’m so excited to bring you the first of many posts to come in my new series, ‘Farm to Fork’ with Good for You Farm. This series will show you how easy it is to use farm fresh ingredients to make delicious food for you and your family!
Good for You Farm is a veteran-owned farm run by Marc & Sarah Tucker in Midland, Virginia. I met Sarah at a caregiver event and was immediately drawn to her and her farm!
I’ve been out several times to visit GFY Farm, the animals and learn about the food she is producing!
On this visit, I wanted Sarah to teach me to make her super soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside farmhouse style fresh bread. Sarah makes this bread several times a week for her family and promised it was easy to make!
We even broadcast LIVE on Facebook to show everyone really how easy it is! (See the videos below)
I’m not a fan of yeast. For some reason, yeast never seems to work for me when I make it. I have no idea the concept of yeast, how it works and I just… ugh! can’t figure it out!
Luckily for me, however, I have fabulous friends who do know how to use yeast!
This farmhouse fresh bread is such a simple recipe that I was able to successfully make it again at my home! My dad even asked for the recipe so he could make it too!
My favorite way to eat this farmhouse fresh bread is hot from the oven and covered in homemade strawberry preserves. It’s heavenly.
(Don’t worry… I’ll be sharing the strawberry preserves recipe this summer!)
You can either follow the recipe at the bottom of this post or you can watch the two videos below. I honestly recommend watching the videos… because duh, I’m in them and they’re amazing… and then following the recipe.
Because if you’re anything like me with yeast… you’ll need all the help you can get!

Farmhouse Fresh Bread – Part 1
Farmhouse Fresh Bread – Part 2
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups bread flour
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- 1 Tbsp raw sugar
- 2 tsp dry yeast
- 1 3/4 cup hot water (110F)
- 1 egg white + 1 tsp water
- 1/4 cup corn meal
- stone pan/sheet for baking
- Add the flour, salt, sugar, and yeast to the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the dough hook attachment.
- Turn the mixer on low and slowly add the hot water.
- Once most of the dry ingredients have been incorporated, turn the mixer to medium high for about 2 minutes. Let the dough hook do all the work bringing the ingredients into a ball.
- Remove the bowl from the mixer and use your hands to pat the dough into a ball. Cover the bowl with a towel and allow to rise for 30 minute until doubled in size.
- Divide dough in half. Roll first half over itself into a roll. Repeat with second loaf.
- Sprinkle corn meal onto baking sheet then place the rolls on top.
- Using a serrated knife, cut slits/lines across the top of each roll.
- Cover with towel again and let rise for 30 minutes.
- Place a shallow pan filled with water on the bottom rack of the oven. Preheat oven to 375F degrees.
- Combine egg white and water. Brush the egg white over the entire surface of the dough. Be generous!
- Bake for 20-30 minutes until golden brown.
