Montana Seed Show Bread Show


February 28, 2024

Spring is just around the corner, so the Montana Seed Show in Harlem will be coming soon. March 7-9 mark the dates for this annual event which will be held at Harlem High School. Entry date and time for the Bread Show is Friday, March 8, between 8 and 9:30 AM at the school’s big gym.

Categories (both youth and adult) are: white bread, 100% whole wheat bread, machine white bread and machine 50% combination whole wheat bread. Also, specialty yeast breads, a popular newer category, may be entered by both adults and youth. Prizes are awarded in each category. Adult first place winners may not enter that category for three years, but are eligible to enter the other categories. Youth winners may enter each year.

Regular white bread and 100% whole wheat bread should be baked in standard size loaf pans. Bread machine entries will depend on the bread machine. All entries should be enclosed in a large zip lock bag or in a large plastic bag with a twist tie. Recipes, with directions, (enclosed in a small plastic bag) are to be included with entries. Please don’t use butter on top of the entry.

All breads will be auctioned at the Show. If you have questions, contact bread chairman Karolee Cronk (353-2874). Come enter your bread and enjoy all the events that the Seed Show has to offer.
