Trenary Home Bakery : History Series Introduction

Trenary Home Bakery was founded in 1928, and has been a big part of Upper Michigan's culture for over 90 years. To honor the history of the bakery and those who love it, we are starting a blog series that will explore the history of the bakery. 

This will series will encompass a wide variety of subjects related to the bakery, including equipment used, recipes, employees, stories from customers, etc.. 

We need you to share your stories, photos, and memories of the bakery with us! Please let us know what you are interested in learning about. All suggestions are appreciated. 

At the end of every month we will randomly select a winner from toast lovers who have submitted stories or photos, and they will win a free Toast Jar! 

Please submit stories, photos, or topic suggestions to info@trenaryhomebakery.com

  • I have been eating Trenary Toast for over 60 years! We were raised it! I raised my sons on it’s, too! And now my oldest son is rasing his children on it. But I have to send it to them, they live in another state. It’s a family tradition!

  • I grew up on “korpua” (spelled wrong I’m sure) and coffee. I was 3 years old dunking my buttered korpua in coffee. We lived in Detroit so when we went up to Houghton, my mom would always buy a few bags to bring home. I still love it!!!

  • My Great Aunt Carmen Ecklid of Negaunee first introduced me to Trenary Toast. I think I was about ten years old. I am now 63 and I still love it!

  • My husbands great grandfather settled in Trenary in the late 1800s. His grandfather Henry VanHala was one of 11 children. I love the Trenary toast especially raisin and cinnamon! Would order more if not so expensive for shipping. We have family cottage in Cedarvile Mi in the Les Cheanux area!
