My Story

Welcome to Brooks Bread Co! My name is Heather, proudly serving customers in the Powhatan area. As many of you know... After suffering infertility for a year, our prayers finally came true with 2 pink lines..until they didn't and we miscarried our sweet baby Brooks in June 2023. The last six months have been absolutely devastating and life has felt completely out of control. I went through the darkest time of my life grieving my son while still in the trenches of infertility.  The first time I began to feel like myself was when I started baking Sourdough Bread again. The process of sourdough baking is long, but extremely calming. It gave me something to look forward to and I finally felt purpose for the first time in months. With all of the extra baking, I started giving loaves away to friends to enjoy! A few months in, my husband and I decided we were going to move forward with our IVF journey. So I started selling my sourdough items to raise money for the expensive procedures we have ahead of us. And with that, my micro-bakery was born and I decided to name it after our sweet baby that we'll never get the chance to hold in our arms -- Brooks Bread Co. My sweet Brooks -- I'm so blessed to have been your mom, even if our time together was cut far too short. I hope you know I love and miss you every single day, you are always on my mind. I hope this will honor your memory and I dream of one day being able to tell your younger sibling all about you while we're baking bread together in the kitchen. "Delight yourself also in the Lord and He shall give you the desires of your heart." - Psalm 37:4 🤍
