About the Bakery

Whole grain naturally fermented sourdough
Community Supported Bakery

DeRego's Bread was established in 2013 when Troy DeRego began baking artisan bread and pastries for sale at the Starkville Community Market. In May of 2015, with a great deal of local support from a community eager for real bread, the bakery on Main Street opened.

My love of bread began with trips to the Portuguese bakeries during visits to my grandparents in New Bedford, Massachusetts. I baked my first loaf at sea on a research schooner! I have studied at the San Francisco Baking Institute, and as a proud member of the Bread Bakers Guild of America I have attended workshops with many of my bread making heroes.

I am grateful for the opportunity to share my craft with this community!

  • Whole Grains

    We get our flour from Carolina Ground in Asheville, North Carolina where they cold-stone-mill our whole grain flours to order. Baking with fresh whole grains has been a revelation in flavor and nutrition.

  • Naturally Fermented

    Sourdough, or levain in French, is the process of fermenting flour with wild yeast cultures. The yeast work along with friendly bacteria to produce wonderfully complex flavors, extend the shelf-life, and begin to break down the grains making them easier to digest and making nutrients more accessible. Most importantly, its delicious!

  • Crackers

    Inspired by the simple crackers that sustained sailors on long voyages across the sea, we use sourdough to add flavor along with natural ingredients such as seeds, vegetables, and spent grains from the brewing of craft beers to make crackers that no one should ever leave home without!
