Spring Valley Bakery is a staple


Fri, Feb 8th, 2013
Posted in Spring Valley Features

At the age of twelve, Peter Haack, of Spring Valley, Minn., like all children, wanted a bicycle. He asked his Father, Daryl, if he could get one. Daryl, who owned the Spring Valley Bakery at the time, told Peter he could work at the bakery to earn money to buy himself a bike. Peter says, “I got a buck a day for doing all types of work at the bakery.”

That was 44 years ago, and not only is Peter still working at the bakery, he became the owner 31 years ago. Peter’s Father, Daryl Haack, owned the business for 32 years before Peter took over ownership, which means the Spring Valley Bakery has been in the Haack family for almost 64 years. Peter believes that this may make the Spring Valley Bakery the oldest business in town. Peter and his wife, Brenda, continue to serve the community of Spring Valley just as his father did for so many years.

The Spring Valley Bakery has a large variety of scrumptious food items to choose from including doughnuts, cinnamon twists, pastries, breads, and long johns just to name a few. If your stomach is not growling yet, the bakery also has many cookie varieties which include sugar cookies, ginger cookies and more, with specialty cookies during holidays such as heart-shaped frosted cookies for Valentine’s Day which are currently on the shelf in the display case at the bakery.

The garlic toast is a very popular choice at the Spring Valley Bakery and is supplied to many restaurants, grocery stores, and caterers in the area as well as other items such as hamburger buns. Local grocery stores, such as Sunshine Foods in Spring Valley and Chatfield, Minn., do business with the bakery selling Spring Valley Bakery items in their stores. In Preston, Minn., the Branding Iron, B & B Olympic Bowl, and Chic’s Pizza and Restaurant purchase fresh bakery items to be served in their restaurants.

Many other businesses in the area take advantage of the Spring Valley Bakery’s popularity including Susie’s Roadhouse of Ostrander, Minn., and the Stupid Loon of Racine, Minn. Caterers in the area, such as Ody’s Country Meats & Catering, of Spring Valley, and Old Tyme Café and Catering of Chatfield, Minn. purchase some of their supplies from the bakery. The Spring Valley Bakery supplies too many area businesses to name each individually, but Peter and Brenda are grateful for each and every one of them.

According to Peter, some of the most popular selections by custo .....
