Why Raw Food?

Raw food is great for everyone. One of the main goals of eating and drinking more raw foods is to obtain plenty of nutrients in an easy-to-digest manner, one that our bodies are naturally suited for. While there’s no need to go completely raw or to declare yourself a “raw vegan,” consuming at least some raw vegetables and fruits every day is important for just about everyone. Learn more here!

Old Town Wild Poppy Bakery

As co-owners of the Old Town (Wheat) Bakery at 510 1st Avenue in Ladysmith, Vancouver Island, Kate Cram and husband Geoff could easily be considered local celebrities!  As an ‘Associate with the Culinary Institute of America‘ who also undertook to certify as a Red Seal Baker in Canada, Kate is truly baker’s baker!

Watch the video that tells the tale of these husband and wife bakeries. Wild Poppy starts at the 3 minute, 15 second mark!

Two children later, Kate and Geoff’s young sons began to experience persistent health issues that had them resorting to a gluten-free diet in search of relief.  The improvement was nothing short of remarkable and a heads up to Kate that gluten may be taking a toll on her own health. The couple found themselves at a professional and personal cross roads with Kate contemplating the end of a career she loved, and their children unable to  set foot within the family business.

That’s how Wild Poppy Bakery and Bistro was born!

Why Raw Food?

Raw food is great for everyone. One of the main goals of eating and drinking more raw foods is to obtain plenty of nutrients in an easy-to-digest manner, one that our bodies are naturally suited for. While there’s no need to go completely raw or to declare yourself a “raw vegan,” consuming at least some raw vegetables and fruits every day is important for just about everyone. Learn more here!

Old Town Wild Poppy Bakery

As co-owners of the Old Town (Wheat) Bakery at 510 1st Avenue in Ladysmith, Vancouver Island, Kate Cram and husband Geoff could easily be considered local celebrities!  As an ‘Associate with the Culinary Institute of America‘ who also undertook to certify as a Red Seal Baker in Canada, Kate is truly baker’s baker!

Watch the video that tells the tale of these husband and wife bakeries. Wild Poppy starts at the 3 minute, 15 second mark!

Two children later, Kate and Geoff’s young sons began to experience persistent health issues that had them resorting to a gluten-free diet in search of relief.  The improvement was nothing short of remarkable and a heads up to Kate that gluten may be taking a toll on her own health. The couple found themselves at a professional and personal cross roads with Kate contemplating the end of a career she loved, and their children unable to  set foot within the family business.

That’s how Wild Poppy Bakery and Bistro was born!
