Beckmann’s Old World Bakery

Beckmann's Old World BakeryHonoring the German commitment to traditional artisan baking.
We love Beckmann’s breads and pies and are always excited when their stuffings arrive at the store in November. They have a variety of slow-rising sourdoughs, whole grain breads, and make wonderful pies.

Beckmann’s is an all-natural, from scratch bakery making many kinds of breads and pastries. They are local, based in Santa Cruz, and use no GMOs, preservatives, dough conditioners, artificial colors, or flavors.

Peter Beckmann started baking up on the UC Santa Cruz campus in one of the co-ops in 1986. Son of a craftsman family, he apprenticed in bread-making at Mantei Bakery in Heidelberg, Germany. After moving to the United States in 1982, Peter had a longing for the traditional breads of his home country, Germany. He baked the first commercial loaves in his kitchen oven and hand-delivered those first samples on his bicycle to four local Santa Cruz grocery stores. Slowly, the business has grown to what it is today.

Here are the products we currently carry in our store.
