About Happy Monk


The Happy Monk Baking Company offers wholesome breads and sweet baked products to the residents of Pender Island, BC. We take the whole bread baking experience into account, using mostly organic locally sourced whole grains, milled on site, and nurturing our own sourdough culture, used in everything we bake. And the bread oven …

It is the realization of one of my long-held dreams, to bake bread in a wood-fired oven. Over the summer and fall of 2018, we built the oven and (mostly) natural shelter for our baking enterprise. It is made of Pender Island clay and stone, and most of the logs and timber for the shelter came from Pender Island.

It is a thing of pride, and every time we use it, we feel inspired to produce the best bread our hands are capable of. And the sweet things!

Look for the Happy Monk Baking Company at the Pender Farmers Market and sign up for our bread subscription service.

Cheers all!
