Our Story

Fresh. Real. Scratch. Delicious.

We are Mike and Brooke the owners of Burnsville Great Harvest Bakery.  Creating scratch made breads, treats, and savories daily.  We pride ourselves in Great Harvest’s focus on using fresh and real ingredients to make premium baked goods from scratch.  The Great Harvest Mission to give generously to others and bake phenomenal breads is what we love bringing to life every day in our community.

Mike has always had passion for food. From an early age, his mom remembers him helping in the kitchen.  This passion is what fuels him and the team’s love for hand-crafting and selling the best tasting, best for you bread available. 

What makes our bread unique? We stone-grind our whole wheat flour every day in our store.  Fresh ground grains of wheat make it better tasting, and better for you!  Even more, it is baked daily with no preservatives.  You can taste the difference with your first bite!  

Outside of the bakery Mike and Brooke love to spend time with their 2 young children who have embraced the bakery.  When they are on site you will see them on a stool helping at the register or watching at the baking table.   Mike is a member of the MN Army National Guard with nearly 18 years of service.  They are active members in the community at the Burnsville YMCA and SOTV church in Apple Valley.
