The most consumed food in the world is bread, which has existed at every family table for thousands of years. Here in Utah, bread-making began with the Ute Tribe and Latter Day Saints; these groups farmed the first crops vital to the survival of their families and the local population. It is with these origins in mind that we have created Farmstead.
The idea of Farmstead, a local European-style bakery, also known as a patisserie, was born one evening during a small gathering. Ten years ago, Chris Herrin, Li Hsun Sun, and Chris Connors were having a foodie conversation in which they shared some of their favorite recipes and restaurants in Las Vegas, Nevada. These individuals already had experience as restaurant owners and food craft connoisseurs. Adding a bakery and working together made a lot of sense since it brought out their passion for feeding people, enjoying good company, and above all, good food! It is in this small moment of breaking bread that Farmstead was born.
