If you have ever been to Northampton, it’s likely you discovered Hungry Ghost Bread, where wood-fired, crusty artisan loaves are made with local organic grains, and are so well loved the bakery often runs out. Owners Jonathan Stevens and Cheryl Maffei are now sending their earthy loaves to the Boston area until October through a bread shares program similar to Community Supported Agriculture. Three times a week, when Red Fire Farm of Granby drives in their CSA boxes, the loaves arrive too (no need to have a vegetable share). Each loaf costs $7.50; you sign up for all the weeks leading to October and pay the total up front. The selection offered rotates, and might be 8-grain, wheat, country, or a blend of spelt, wheat, and rye. Even if the bakery runs out of bread, your loaf will be in the delivery to Boston. To sign up and find the delivery schedule, go to, or call 413-582-9009.
