Billing itself as the “ultimate subscription box for clean carbohydrates”, Wildgrain sends monthly deliveries to your door filled with things like slow-fermented sourdough breads, fresh pastas, and artisanal pastries.
The company was founded by husband-and-wife duo Johanna Hartzheim and Ismail Salhi. They were inspired to find healthier, high-quality carb options when Johanna was pregnant with their first child.
Wildgrain is located in Boston, Massachusetts. They partner with small bakers and pasta makers across the US to keep the tradition of nutritious and artisanal food alive in a time when junk food reigns supreme.
Wildgrain currently offers two subscription options: the Mixed Box or the Bakery Box.
The Wildgrain Mixed Box includes an assortment of sourdough bread, fresh pasta and artisan pastries.
The Wildgrain Bakery Box includes sourdough bread plus breakfast baked goods and pastries.
Both boxes contain ready-to-bake from frozen products that require no prep. The actual products will vary each month and often include products inspired by the season.
Customize Your Wildgrain Box
One really cool feature of the Wildgrain subscription is that you have the ability to customize it to your preferences.
After your first order, you will be able to log into your account and see the items included in your upcoming box. You can then substitute any items as long as it’s at least 4 days before your ship date.
Subscribers also have access to exclusive add-on products each month that are only available for members.
Wildgrain Sourdough Bread
One of the most popular products in the Wildgrain subscription is the delicious sourdough bread.
Every month the sourdough flavors will change, and every season new options are rotated in. You can bake these breads from frozen in 25 minutes or less.
