Nature's ingredients. 5 g protein & fat free. Brotzeit (Breadtime). Brotzeit is a word that speaks of the old world respect for bread as a way of life. It is the mid-morning break that people celebrate by sharing freshly baked bread with co-workers, friends, and family. European bread baking is a sophisticated art. Centuries of experience in using only simple, natural ingredients, and allowing time for the bread to rise slowly, is passed from master-bakers to apprentices. The result is a wholesome, full-flavored loaf of bread, worthy of sharing with those we love. I opened Beckmann's Old World Bakery in Santa Cruz in 1985, honoring the German commitment to traditional bread-making. My years as a baker's apprentice in Heidelberg, combined with working in my family's business gave me the tools of my trade. My personal belief in socially responsible work is reflected in providing nutritious goods baked with care, providing a good work environment, and serving our community. It is our highest business priority to maintain quality, consistency, and service to our customers. We value your support and are proud to provide baked goods that enhance your way of life.
Beckmann’s Old World Bakery, Ltd was founded by Peter Beckmann in November 1985. Son of a craftsman family, he apprenticed in bread-making at Mantei Bakery in Heidelberg, Germany. After moving to the United States in 1982, Peter had a longing for the traditional breads of his home country, Germany. He baked the first commercial loaves in his kitchen oven and hand-delivered those first samples on his bicycle to four local Santa Cruz grocery stores. This was the start of a bakery that to this day has been honoring the German commitment to traditional artisan bread making.
