The Olde Mill Restaurant’s goal was to create something that no one else in the market had. Bakers like Irene Beachy come in at 3 a.m. every morning to prepare bread, sweet rolls, cinnamon buns, cupcakes and other treats. Beachy said baking brings a sense of calm and accomplishment.
“We enjoy it,” Beachy said.
"Where else do you get freshly baked homemade bread that comes with Amish-made peanut butter and strawberry jam?" said carpenter Roy Hash.
