About The Founders
Adam Majewski: Raised predominantly in the U.S.A, Adam Majewski is a classically trained baker from Minneapolis, MN. Attending Minneapolis Community And Technical College for his Culinary studies, Chef/Head Baker Adam worked his way through many a different station through his career, yet settled on Baking due to his ability to excel quickly through training, and focus in Culinary school and his love of the technical artistry which came with the job. Chef/Head Baker Adam Eventually ended up meeting Asma Abdille, and both wanting similar out comes for their careers, as well lives, joined forces to create a wonderful business of love for the community.
Asma Abdille: An extraordinary young woman born and raised predominantly in Somalia, living mostly a nomadic life in her youth. After contracting tinnitus at the age of 14 years old, which developed in to auditory neuropathy hearing loss, she came to America for treatment and a better life. Working towards opening her own business she partnered with Baker Adam in order to work together and collaborate to create a community hub that can support not only her self and her family, but also the community that supports her.
The vision of Blue Ox Bakery is to see a world without hunger or poverty, and to bring an end to social inequality and injustice.
The Blue Ox Bakery Aspires to end hunger and poverty by closing the social inequality gaps in today’s society, by using food to help change the way people think about our history and the future ahead, and to make real time change through supporting organizing in our community to ensure all in our community have equal rights, equal justice, and are treated the same as everyone else without having to fear for their life. while working for social change we also choose to live and work in a truthful narrative of our community, not one that gives advantage to one group of people over another in working for positive change through the commonality of bread and baking in general, as well developing understanding that we are all the same, all you need is to be open to our similarities.
WHAT IS A COMMUNITY SUPPORTED BAKERY?
A CSB is not simply a bakery, but one in which the risks and rewards of the enterprise are shared. It’s true that local bakeries are supported by people in the community around the shop buying loaves, but only as and when they feel like it. For a bakehouse or bakery to be considered a CSB there must be a greater level of involvement and commitment shared between consumer and bakery. There needs to be some blurring between the ‘me baker and you customer’ line, with each becoming what the Slow Food movement would call a co-producer.
All in all, a community supported bakery, is bakery which sells its fare through programs using the CSA business model, where community members come together to participate in buying bakery products in a weekly delivery and purchasing program in a preordered format. This in turn lowers waste for the environment, lowers cost for the end consumer, and creates a more secure income for the baker.
The inspiration for Community Supported Baking comes from Community Supported Agriculture (CSA), which The Soil Association describes as “A partnership between farmers and consumers where, at best, the responsibilities and rewards of farming are shared.”
As a micro-bakeries take on a similar business structure as a local business, this same principal is applied in the same way. making it much safer financially for both the baker and consumer.
