At Wolfmoon Bakery in downtown Nehalem, Phil Dagostino and Jordan Gulaskey make “wild fermented bread and baked goods and nano-roasted coffee with intention in service of community.” The warm, inviting atmosphere of Wolfmoon welcomes customers in to enjoy their bread, pastries, small-batch single-origin coffee, and conversation.
Phil has been baking sourdough, artisan bread since moving to the north Oregon coast about five years ago. He sold his bread at restaurants and the Manzanita Farmers Market before opening Wolfmoon Bakery late last spring. Phil’s bread is wild fermented, and he sources his wholesome, local ingredients from farmer-producers in the northwest. Phil and Jordan are passionate about bread, coffee, and the environment. If you want a coffee to go, be sure to bring your mug or you may “borrow” one from their collection.
Food Roots' Individual Development Account program enabled Phil to purchase equipment and supplies for his bakery. IDAs are matched three to one savings accounts for entrepreneurs of modest incomes and assets, to save money to begin or invest in their farm or food business. If you or someone you know is a farmer, fisher, or food producer in our community, IDAs are an awesome opportunity to save for an asset purchase for your business.
