The story of Pittsfield Rye Bakery began back in 1929.
Charlie Robbins brought his rye bread recipe from Brooklyn, New
York, where he and his wife Tillie would make their local
deliveries by way of horse and buggy. Many years later, second
generation baker Arnie Robbins continued the tradition, with his
wife Linda by his side. They made some of Pittsfield’s finest
pastries along with breads. After years of working with his
parents, third generation baker Rick Robbins and his wife Renée
took over the family business in 2002. The original business
name was extended at that time with the addition of the words
specialty breads and company. We now focus strictly on creating
breads and rolls that are second to none.
No matter how you slice it, we – along with future
fourth-generation bakers, daughter Randi and son Ryan – are
looking to the future of family traditions and continued baking
excellence! As always, our mission is to provide exquisite
products and service that will exceed our customers’
expectations, focusing on the creation of breads and rolls that
are essential components of a healthy lifestyle.
Retail store open Fridays and Saturdays, from 9:00
AM to 2:00 PM.
