Spelt Right

(The mill that Spelt Right is located in, some of the delicious bagels they make, hard at work)

I discovered a new local business today! I LOVE LOVE LOVE other local business! I love to see what they are doing, how they got there start, where they are going, where do they create etc. I am very excited to share it with all of you...

Spelt Right (Website here: Spelt Right )

They make bagels, pizza dough and breads and mainly sell them wholesale to grocery stores in our area. My friend Rommy works at their bakery part time, and that is how I recently learned of them. I also learned that they make/bake their products in an old historic mill in Yarmouth (just the next town over) call the Sparhawk Mill. Spelt Right has over 1500 square feet overlooking the beautiful Royal River. And, how cool is this, the Royal River generates the power for the building from the powerful hydro turbines located under the mill! Built at the turn of the century, the Sparhawk Mill is now home to a number of successful Maine businesses. Too cool!

Here is some info. directly from their site, their mission:

"Our Story & Mission ~

Spelt Right® is a small Maine company that specializes in baked goods made with organic spelt flour and other organic and all natural ingredients. The founders, Beth George, a Portland attorney who specialized for 10 years in representing children, and Tim Kane, a vice president of a local college, started Spelt Right as a result of the profound impact diet change made on their son’s life.

Our story is about taking our personal and professional life
experiences in a new direction to create a company that cares deeply about its products and the message it hopes to convey. It is also a story about empowerment.

We hope, through our company, to convey the message that parents can make a huge positive difference in their children’s lives if they examine, as a first step, how their kids are nourished".
