Gathering together to bake and share a meal has been an essential part of our lives for generations. At Heirloom Bakery & Hearth, we want to celebrate and preserve this experience by providing from-scratch fare in an inviting atmosphere. All of our baked goods are made fresh daily, using local and seasonal ingredients whenever possible. We find inspiration from what's growing locally, heritage recipes and the great stories that undoubtedly arise around the kitchen table. These are the heirlooms we treasure most.
Owner / Dough Man / Pearl Snap Collector
Since he was a young boy, Scott has been rolling up his sleeves for adventures and creativity in the kitchen. Little did Scott know here in 1989 that he would one day open a bakery. He was just rolling out one real tasty pie dough. In 2004, Scott began baking professionally at Spring Mill Bread Co. in Washington, D.C. & in 2008 earned his BA in Art History at American University. It was in D.C. that same year that he met his future wife, Kate--a Midwestern girl with common roots in cooking and art. She liked his pearl snap shirts and humor and he liked her smile and artistic talent. In 2013, they moved to Kansas City to open Heirloom Bakery & Hearth together, surrounded by family, friends and the community they love!
Owner/Cookie Curator/ Rubber Stamp Enthusiast
Since she was a young tot, Kate has enjoyed any creative activity. Whether it was painting every room of her (raw wood) doll house a different color or decorating christmas cookies with her Grandma and cousins, she relished in the process of making things. Her interest in art continued to grow throughout grade school and high school and when it was time for her to go to college, Kate chose to study Art. She graduated from Drake University in Spring of 2008 with a BA in Painting/Drawing. In the fall, she moved to Washington, D.C. to get her Masters in Art Therapy at George Washington University and --unbeknownst to Kate or Scott-- meet her husband. Kate was thrilled to finally return to her hometown and share her love of food and arts at Heirloom Bakery & Hearth.
