Original Recording Date August 3rd 2016
Guest: Jesse, Polestar Hearth
Polestar Hearth is a local independent bread business run by Jesse Merrill. Jesse has been a staple in Guelph for years, providing home-made bread to families through his bread share, markets, and stores and can be spotted all over town on bread deliveries. Soon Guelph will be lucky enough to have a dedicated Polestar Hearth storefront. We most recently re-connected at the Junction, where I was recording radio at the weekly potlucks, and Jesse was located for his bread-share pick ups. We chatted about being an entrepreneur, taking chances to make a business out of something you love, Guelph, homesteading, family, locally sourcing food, and of course, bread.
