Pine River Bakery celebrates 5 years, continuing 92 years of tradition.


The Pine River Bakery celebrated five years of business under the current owners, but those five years are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to baked goods in Pine River.

Pine River has actually had a retail bakery since 1921, when the history book “Logsleds to Snowmobiles” says George (Dud) and Earnest (Prong) Robideau built the original Pine River Bakery. The bakery was in a different location at the time. It was moved in 1926 and again in 1957.
