Great Harvest Bread
Your Neighborhood Bread Store

Great Harvest Bread Company in Okemos opened its doors on July 11, 1990, as the first franchise in Michigan. It has been in the Beck family for the last 25 years -  until April 1, 2016, when we purchased the bakery! Like the Becks, we look forward to being a part of this great community.   We are both excited to return to the East Lansing/Okemos area where we met over 25 years ago on the campus at Michigan State University.  For years, Great Harvest  has been milling wheat and making the freshest whole grain bread around, for our family and for yours. Our passion for great tasting, nutritious bread, and our desire to run a community-based business, led us to Great Harvest and we can't imagine anything better!

Your Okemos Great Harvest looks like no other Great Harvest out there. We operate under a “Freedom Franchise.” The “Freedom” part means that we get to run our business in a way that meets our community’s unique needs. The “Franchise” part gives us access to the recipes and processes that Great Harvest has continuously improved for over two decades. The result is breads and sweets that will knock your socks off! 

Stop in and see us soon, and Go Green!!
