Bread is food for the body and the soul. Bread is the manifestation of all that is good in nature. That’s why the partnership between Green Lion Bread and our neighbors with special needs is so perfect.

Mark Doberenz began baking bread 15 years ago with the bakery at Camphill Village U.S.A. in Copake, NY. Working as a baking social therapist with adults with special needs he was inspired to study bread seriously and share this in his work. As the bread improved, so did the dignity within the work life for all involved.

Green Lion Breads is the current manifestation of Mark’s journey. Knowing the farmers, understanding the different qualities of grains, stone milling and creating soulful bread for nutrient consumption and deep flavor makes Green Lion’s products exceptional.  


Green Lion Breads is a not-for-profit bakery dedicated to sourcing local and regional whole grains, including heritage and ancient grains that are organically grown. Our naturally leavened breads are handcrafted with stone ground flours we mill ourselves to result in the freshest, full-flavored, nutrient dense loaves for our table. 


Be a loyal customer. Phoenixville offers many choices when it comes to eateries. Making Green Lion Breads your source for artisan baked goods not only assures you of the highest quality products, but as a loyal Green Lion customer, you are supporting the arts and “maker” movements in our community, and you are empowering neighbors with disabilities and special needs to participate in our local economy.
