artisan sourdough bakery + legendary bread gifts
2214 West Magnolia Blvd., Burbank, California

Wow… What a Year! It’s our 1st Birthday and we’re celebrating the whole month of August! Thanks to our neighbors and new friends from Burbank and beyond for their support since the day we opened in August of 2021. Our little micro-bakery has taken the art and craft of sourdough bread and created a following for our unique, organic, gluten-neutral, lectin-free loaves (vegan, too!). We’re also proud to have introduced hundreds of people to Organic Pastures/Raw Farm butters, the perfect complement to our breads. And now we’ve made Clif Family Solar Grown Honey Spreads and Laura Ann’s Jams available for purchase on line, as well as Ojai Olive Oil Company Organic Olive Oils and Balsamic Vinegars, our hand-picked top-rated Bread Knife, 100% Cotton Breadness Tea Towel and our Breadness Eco-friendly Tote. All of these can be found in our Shop. Our Breadness Gift Collection also features the above items assembled into gifts that are sure to leave a lasting impression.

ORGANIC ARTISAN SOURDOUGH BREADS

ORGANIC PASTURES RAW FARM BUTTERS

CLIF FAMILY SOLAR GROWN HONEY SPREADS

When we first tasted these honeys from Clif Family in Napa, California, we knew we had to make them available to our Breadness customers. Breadness and butter are a match made in heaven; adding a just a bit of this honey into the mix turns Breadness into a unique treat! We also like that this honey is Solar Grown™ which means the honey production operation runs entirely on solar power. Good for you, good for the environment! Available in three flavors: Cinnamon, Ginger and Cacao. Words can hardly convey the intensity of these flavors; you need to come to the bakery and taste a sample for yourself! Or, be daring and order one or more flavors and experience the surprise we experienced when first tasting these bold honey blends!

LAURA ANN’S JAMS

Breadness is the foundation upon which delicious ideas can be built. In addition to our Organic Pastures butters and Clif Family Solar-Grown Honey spreads, we’re excited to feature a local artisan line of fruit-based toppings on our shelves in the form of Laura Ann’s Jams. Laura Ann has created over a dozen “jamazing” flavors that you just have to taste to believe. Five of her flavors are named “Lo-Fi” because they contain no added sugar; sweetened only with grape juice concentrate. Free tastes available at the bakery, or order based on the descriptions found on each page. One thing we know for sure, these jams sell out almost as fast as we can put them on the shelf!

NUTTZO NUT & SEED BUTTER

Everybody loves Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwiches, right? Well, yes and no. As tasty as this combination may sound, and especially with a slice or two of Random Acts of Breadness Artisan Country Loaf or Cinnamon Raisin Maple Pecan sourdough bread, many people cannot tolerate peanuts/peanut butter. And with the publication of Dr. Steven Gundry’s groundbreaking book, The Plant Paradox, he explains the reasons peanuts (and cashews) should be avoided. So when we became aware of a nut/seed butter that didn’t contain peanuts or cashews, we were interested to try it out!

The Story of Random Acts of Breadness

Random Acts of Breadness was never intended to be a business.

That was the furthest thing from his mind when award-winning composer / songwriter / producer / engineer Randall Michael Tobin thought to himself in late November 2016:

“I wonder if I could make sourdough bread?”

“If it turns out alright, I could give it to family and friends for the holidays.”

What made this highly unusual is that although Randall enjoyed cooking, he had never made bread before! But by mid December, he had found the right combination of ingredients, the right process, and had the right tools to begin this unpredictable journey.

The result was pretty darn good, but the reactions from those on the receiving end of these “random acts of breadness” were off the charts! One-for-one each gift recipient stated, “This is the best bread I’ve ever had!” So Randall kept making, baking and giving his bread away—holidays or special occasions not required!

His wife, Cyndie, created unique presentation designs with various tea towels, ribbons and ornaments. She also bought the first organic bamboo cutting boards to form the foundation of the gifts. And one never knew when Randall was going to show up randomly with a “random act of breadness” in hand, ringing their doorbell!

This activity had been going on for a few years when people started demanding to buy the bread! They didn’t want to wait for a random act of breadness. They wanted bread NOW! Randall had to politely decline their requests as he didn’t have a permit to make and sell bread, and obtaining a Cottage Industry Permit would have limited his ability to make and sell other food items he was developing.

So Randall came up with a solution: continue to give breadness, and let the recipient know that they could leave a tip if they so desired (there was no law against that!). The tips were commensurate with what the bread would have sold for, but by no means covered the actual cost of making the bread, which takes three days and a lot of labor (and love) to make. Still, the tips helped with ingredient costs and the requests for breadness kept coming.

During this time, Randall came up with the idea of branding this activity as Random Acts of Breadness and proceeded to search for domain names. The first name he searched for was Breadness.com and, as if angels were guiding this journey, it was available! Randall registered that name, along with .net and .org variations, and also registered the full-name versions (randomactsofbreadness.com, etc.).

Once the domain names were in place, Randall, who is also a professional website designer, created this site, which has evolved to the form you are experiencing right now. And the bread gifts, which became the stuff of legend, are now available right here!

Take a look at our Breadness Collection of unique gifts ranging from Basic to Bountiful to the Breadness RockStar! 

Now, you, too, can surprise that special someone (or someones!) by gifting them a Random Act of Breadness!

And once you do, your life will never be the same…
