From a young age, I was always a baker. Whether it was a 4-H project or a family birthday, I always loved making sweets & treats for those in my life. This passion continued throughout my life and even led me to make a career as a pastry chef.
In 2011 I was diagnosed with Celiac disease. For a baker, this diagnosis can at first feel like a death sentence. But it was through this I discovered with work and experimentation, I could transform all of my favorite desserts, which I had made for years, into safe, gluten-free products, that anyone could enjoy.
Early in 2015, I received the opportunity to open my very own bakery, in my hometown of Lancaster, Ohio. I knew this was a chance to spread the joy of a sweet treat even to those of us with allergies and sensitivities. It was that day that Happy Goat Gluten-Free Baked Goods and Bulk Foods was born.
Happy Goat's mission is to provide high quality, gluten-free items to our community. We specialize in sweet, bakery items that warm your heart and fill your belly regardless of allergies and dietary needs. We work with other local small businesses and use as many local ingredients as possible when available.
*Though we do our best to work with as many food allergies as possible, including egg and dairy, there are limitations to the accommodations our small business can make. Please call with any additional questions.
