Irene Beachy, baker at 'The Olde Mill'

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.
