Blue Scorcher Bakery

Location: USA
Organization: worker cooperative
Size: 32 members

Create memorable seasonal foods from fresh local ingredients. We seek out small producers and bring you their heirloom varieties of everything from apples to beans to tomatoes. Being a cooperative means that stewardship of the business is spread out among the workers. Everyone who works at the bakery participates in decision-making and has the opportunity to become an owner of the business.  We strive to enjoy our work and to attain a livable wage for all. Collectivism is an ancient way of working together, seen in such places as agrarian communities pooling resources at harvest time, fisherman owned canneries, worker-owned plywood mills, and even on pirate ships.
