Know Your Baker

Neighbourhood bakers play a hugely positive role in their communities. One that goes far beyond basic nourishment. Their stories deserve to be heard.

The Rise Up! Podcast is a celebration of bakers, the bakeries they create and the people they serve.

Join Mark Dyck as he talks with bakers and bakery owners from across North America and around the world. Hear about their struggles and triumphs and learn about the satisfaction that feeding a community can provide.

Charlie Emers is an old friend of mine, although only via email, until we got together for a conversation back in early 2021. (Rise Up! #118)

Since he was on the show, we've struck up a fun correspondence, with Charlie writing me long emails from his front porch.  I imagine him hitting send and then either heading to the bake shop or sneaking out the back of the farm for a hike or a ski.  It's a friendship I cherish.

Baker, Philosopher and Matzoh maker, Charlie Emers of Patchwork Farm and Bakery in rural Vermont.
