Bakery Update

Hello again Humble Crumb fans, friends, and relations,


It is with sadness that we inform you that the property we have been pursuing as the home of The Humble Crumb for the past year has fallen through. After hundreds of hours of research and planning and phone calls, quotes from many wonderful contractors, help from bankers and lawyers and a wonderful real estate agent and many of you, we could not come to an agreement that was suitable for both parties at this time. Thus, we will not be opening in Chelmsford this summer as we had previously planned.
However, we will continue to provide you all with the baked goods you know and love for any and all occasions, and hand-deliver them right to you (remember, our delivery service is free to Chelmsford). Click the following link for our regular menu:
And here for our cake menu: or simply click on them in the orange bar above.
Thank you everyone who has supported us in any and every way along the way. We can’t wait to see what the next Humble Crumb venture will be. Until then, let us know if you need any baked goods, birthday cakes, pies, Danish, cinnamon rolls, buttery cookies, fudgy brownies, homemade granola, or anything else from our above menus.
Thanks again!
From Sarah Ludwig at The Humble Crumb Bakery
