We could say a lot of things about how the MIDWIFE + the BAKER came to be but the short of it is that we are husband and wife, we happen to have two of the oldest professions, and we are psyched to be able to work with our hands everyday and stay connected to the simple and essential things in life - Mac as baker and Jaime as midwife.

June Taylor Jams

We work directly with small family farms, seeking out heirloom and forgotten fruits, hoping to revive the tastes of our collective pasts. These fruits, once commonly grown and available, are now rare and almost extinct. Supporting the farmers who grow them helps to ensure that these varieties of fruit will not be lost

Tcho chocolate

Tcho chocolate makes everything better. Making better chocolate is simple. Source ethically. Treat growers fairly. Preserve the land. Doing it the TCHO way results in a better tasting chocolate you can believe in.

Jered’s Pottery is Jered Nelson and his talented crew of artists and craftspeople. Jered has hand-thrown over 100,000 vessels in his 27-year career as a potter. Beautiful design, Jered believes, inevitably comes from fine craftsmanship. Jered’s fascination with how people interact with ordinary objects—a lip to a cup, a hand on a bowl—inspires the subtle details in his work.

James and the Giant Cupcake

Eurydice Manning started James and The Giant Cupcake in the summer of 2008. She had always dreamed of starting her own business and most importantly, putting the magic back into food. Everywhere she went she saw cupcake shops of all kinds- filled with grown-ups. There was a certain childlike excitement that she saw with people eating cupcakes that no other food had done. She wanted to bring that excitement back to the Bay Area, specifically Oakland, her hometown.
