Attention Snowbirds...

As you arrive back to Saskatchewan through Maple Creek, you really must stop in Consul and visit Manley's Bread and Honey Bakery. The lovely smell of fresh-baked bread is a tonic for all those long numbing hours in a car. We stopped at Manley's yesterday while returning from a U.S. road trip and picked up a multigrain loaf. Delicious this morning toasted with honey...

I had a quick chat with Vicki Manley, who told me the bread is made with organic wheat purchased locally and milled at the bakery. She also sells honey produced by her son, Mike. I was curious to know how they managed in a town of just 70 people, but she says business is good. In a way, it reminds me of those little French villages that, no matter how small, have a cherished bakery supplying the townsfolk with their daily loaf of warm fresh bread.
