Tall Grass Prairie Bread Company is committed to fresh, daily from-scratch baking with a focus on organic grains from local farmers. We do stone-ground milling onsite. Tall Grass mills organic whole wheat Red Fife flour, organic Spelt, and organic Rye. We buy our organic white flour from Prairie Flour Mills, in Elie, Manitoba.
Tall Grass is the first bakery in Manitoba to embrace organic Red Fife wheat. We use it in almost all of our baking.
Baguette (regular & multigrain)
Our baguettes take their lead from Europe. Long and crusty with a soft, yet, substantial texture. C’est formidable! We use local organic white whole wheat flour from Prairie Flour Mills, in Elie, Manitoba to make this delicious bread. (Regular baguettes – daily; Multigrain – Saturdays (Wolseley & The Forks Market), Sundays (The Forks Market). On long weekends at The Forks Market we bake the much sought-after multigrain baguette from Saturday through Monday.)
Brown Rice and corn Bread
(low in gluten)
No wheat! An option for those looking to limit their consumption of gluten, but still want to include bread in their food choices. This loaf contains mostly brown rice, as well as corn flour, buckwheat millet and some flax. While this recipe does not contain any gluten, Tall Grass is NOT a gluten-free bakery. Cross contamination is possible. (Only available frozen.)
Cracked Wheat Bread
We’ve been making this Tall Grass favourite for years and years. Cracked wheat adds additional flavour, texture and fibre to this delicious mostly white organic flour based bread. (Daily)
Overnight sourdough – made the ancient way. No commercial yeast, oil, sugar or honey added.
fig walnut / olive rosemary
Both breads feature the basic sourdough ingredients – flour, water and salt. Each of these two recipes are tweaked to create a savoury and satisfying loaf. The Fig Walnut bread is available between Thanksgiving and Easter, while the Olive Rosemary is made between Easter and Thanksgiving. (Fridays, Seasonal)

Most countries around the world celebrate the end of harvest with a special bread that recognizes the bounty of that region. The Tall Grass Harvest loaf is based upon the Struan Micheil harvest bread of West Scotland.
This customer fall favourite includes pretty much the complete cornucopia of the prairie harvest season, featuring kernels of corn. All of the grains that we have used in our baking play a role in our Harvest Loaf. Available in large and small sizes. (Fall & Winter)
savoury sourdough – Summer Song
When the farmers begin their spring seeding, a date which varies depending upon whether this season comes early, late or somewhere in between – Tall Grass stops making the Harvest loaf, and begins baking Savoury Sourdough bread (at the Wolseley Bakery) also known as Summer Song (at the Forks Market).
This loaf combines white organic flour with whole wheat, as well as wheat and rye sourdough starter, and commercial yeast. A variety of herbs such as chives, green onions, parsley, dill and garlic add several layers of tastiness to this light, fluffy and flavourful loaf. What a bread with which to celebrate spring and summer!
