In March of 2002, James Clark Jr. lost his job. Together the Clarks prayerfully read the book Mind Your Own Business. Using their limited resources, the family began grinding flour for 12 loaves of whole wheat bread to sell door-to-door in their community. They wanted to share hope and health with their neighbors.
Less than two years later, they outgrew their kitchen and moved into Stone Cave Bakery in Tennessee. At that point, they were making 100 loaves every week.
In addition to the bakery, they opened a health food store, held cooking classes, and provided personal health counseling.
The family has more help now, and they bake an average of 1,000 loaves per week, using only whole grains. Their work is difficult, but it is made worthwhile by people like Lyle Rogers, a customer who was told by his doctors that they could not help him. He praises God for the healing he received through the Clark’s ministry.

last month · We are down to the last week. Should be getting the pins taken out of my leg this coming Monday. Depending on outcome will know if able to resume work.
3 months ago · Hello friends. I have some bad news for those who like certain items that we make. Recently the chief baker (me) has suffered several accidents, first broken ankle two weeks ago, and now broken wrist last week. Because of this we will be discontinuing some items that are difficult for my assistants to make. Look forward to restarting them as soon as I am able and/or we find an assistant baker able to do them. The items thus far are the Coconut Pecan Rolls, Pita, Crusty, Dark Rye, and the Italian Loaf.
