I recently met Anne and John Gohorel. They have circumvented the empty nest syndrome.
Even though they live in a sparsely populated area, the Gohorels discovered a market for homemade organic bread and therefore started the new business of the Breadfellows.
Breadfellows was years in the making, although undetected until last summer when their 2 children were done with college and living on their own.
Almost 2 decades ago, Anne picked up a short term job working at a restaurant and discovered a taste for baking. She kept experimenting with bread recipes as the kids became more independent.
Last summer, John and Anne acquired used equipment and found a location to set up Breadfellows and together they have fun baking bread to sell to the local family owned businesses and farmer’s markets.
