Last February marked the opening of Home Grain Bakery in McLaren Flat and, as a joke, I made a suggestion that a ride with three bakery stops take place, with the Aldinga Home Grain Bakery as the start and finish and their new Home Grain Bakery at McLaren Flat as the mid-point. A short, but…Continue
