La Farm brings delicious bread, sandwiches to fair

Just one taste of La Farm Bakery's white chocolate baguettes and you will become hooked. Now, imagine that deliciousness served warm, drizzled with Belgian chocolate and served on a stick. That is decadence at the N.C. State Fair!

La Farm's bread truck will be parked outside of the Agriculture Today tent, located near Dorton Arena and Gate 1.

In addition to the baguettes, you can also get their new bread - the Piedmont Sourdough. This bread is being introduced at the fair and was made as a celebration of the Cary bakery's 15 year anniversary. 

"There's no better way for us to share our gratitude than by creating a bread made with flour that's grown and milled right here in North Carolina," Master Baker Lionel Vatinet said in a statement. "Our Piedmont Sourdough is an homage to the farmers who are now growing hard winter wheat for us throughout the state, and to our community which has been so supportive of us over these 15 years."

Vatinet has been working closely with the wheat grower at Carter Farms and Carolina Ground, located in Asheville, in an effort to replace all of the whole wheat and rye flours used at La Farm with these locally grown and cold-stone milled, organic, heirloom flours. 

The Piedmont Sourdough has an earthy and nutty flavor with a smooth crumb and crispy crust. 

The truck at the N.C. State Fair will have loaves of the Piedmont Sourdough available for $6.29 and $8.29. 

While at the truck, you can also get fresh pimento cheese and BLT sandwiches served on this bread.
