Little Bread Company…Saving the World Naturally, One bite at a Time

Our highlight story of the week comes from one of our partners from Fayetteville, Arkansas…LITTLE BREAD COMPANY. Here is their story, enjoy!

This little community bakery is the place where anyone is welcome, we’re on a first name basis with most of our customers, and everything is made right here.

Our relationships with local farmers keep us in quality seasonal ingredients and we’re serious about making sure that local, artisan, and fresh is the way we feed our community.  Our hard-working staff enjoys playing with new flavors and we take pride in everything we mix, shape and assemble by hand here on Block Street…

When Ben and Hannah built their very first wholesale kitchen in 2001, they had no idea that someday their little bread bakery would turn into a fast paced, hopping little joint that would offer a variety of dozens of made-from-scratch items a day, employ a team of wonderful people, and serve their community as a hot spot of activity & love.
We wouldn’t have it any other way… thanks for letting us feed you

EVERYTHING TASTES HOMEMADE BECAUSE IT IS.

Nothing from a box.
Everything made right. Here.

Everyone has their favorite community spot. Here you get great people, service, music, and most importantly, food.

You’ll never eat anywhere else.
Ever. Again.

❝This place tastes like love.
What could be better than that?

Located at 116 North Block Street, Fayetteville, Arkansas 72701, (479) 527-0622. Stop in, take a load off of your feet, enjoy their awesome baked goods….and of course your favorite espresso drink or a fine cup of our fabulous gourmet roasted Mountain Bird Coffees.

Rainforest Alliance, Where Coffee, People and Environment Prosper

There’s a reason your beginning to see more of our gourmet roasted coffees carry “The Rainforest Alliance” insignia on our packaging. Mountain Bird Coffee is committed to that same vision as outlined on “The Rainforest Alliance” home page; A WORLD WHERE PEOPLE AND ENVIRONMENT PROSPER TOGETHER (http://www.rainforest-alliance.org/about. Take the time to visit their website, share in that vision and know that we put our product and money where it counts the most, with the betterment of mankind and this planet.

Our Mission

The Rainforest Alliance works to conserve biodiversity and ensure sustainable livelihoods by transforming land-use practices, business practices and consumer behavior.

Our Vision

We envision a world where people and the environment prosper together.

Our Strategy

We believe that the best way to keep forests standing is by ensuring that it is profitable for businesses and communities to do so. That means helping farmers, forest managers and tourism businesses realize greater economic benefits by ensuring ecosystems within and around their operations are protected, and that their workers are well-trained and enjoy safe conditions, proper sanitation, health care and housing. Once businesses meet certain environmental and social standards, we link them up to the global marketplace where demand for sustainable goods and services is on the rise.

Coffee at War Eagle Mill

War Eagle Mill

We were proud to be a part of the War Eagle Mill Craft and Culinary Fair on October 18th-20th, 2012.  We were able to educate thousands of people on Mountain Bird Coffee and Tea Company and what sets us apart from other coffee companies.  What is it you ask??  Here you go:

  • 100% Arabica, shade grown coffees sourced DIRECT FROM FARMS that we have relationships with
  • Sustainable practices from farm to cup
  • We start with the highest quality green coffee beans to ensure the perfect cup of coffee each and every time
  • ALL workers on the farm are paid a living wage, not just the co-op like Fair Trade–We go beyond!
