Our Story

Our aim is to produce high quality, handmade products from locally grown, chemical-free, sustainable produce. We believe in employing people and not machinery to help support our local economy. We believe that just because you’re gluten-free doesn’t mean living shouldn’t be easy.

Free's Bakery started as Down Home Traditions LLC, was a test project in the spring of 2010 under the Minnesota cottage law. The concept was to pickle a variety of vegetables and to make a variety of savory jellies not offered by other vendors. The customer response to the products was excellent. In 2013 our jellies became so versatile we began calling them ‘flavors’ as they are used more as an ingredient than a jelly. Due to our own lifestyle change and customer demand we introduced our gluten-free cookies and buns in fall 2013 with great response. 

In 2015 due to a change in regulation we could no longer use our business name Down Home Traditions to sell at the farmer's market, so we started Free's Bakery with all the same great recipes!

With the 2016 New Year came a new idea; to purchase a truck to remodel into a food truck and equip it with our existing equipment. However, we failed to meet our goal. 

In 2018 the decision was made to discontinue our gluten-free bakery items and refocus on our canned goods and spa products.

 Limited products are available for local pick up. Please contact us with questions or for more information. At this time all our food products are homemade and not subject to state inspection. Therefore they are not available for shipping. Please order online or visit us at a local Farmers' Market to purchase these goods.
