Product Details

A favorite from grandma’s table. No Saturday night New England Frank and Beans supper is complete without our Brown Bread in a can.

About The Producer

Calef's Country Store

Calef’s Country Store

Established in 1869, Calef's has been "buying local" since Ulysses S. Grant was president.

In 1869, just after the Civil War, Mary Chesley Calef mortgaged her family farm and pledged her savings to open Calef’s Store in the front rooms of her modest home in Barrington NH. Five generations of the Calef family operated Calef’s Big Store until the 1990’s, including Mary’s son Senator Austin Calef. Today the traditions endure as Calef’s Country Store serves the local community as well as visitors from afar. We still pump our own molasses and honey, cheese is aged in our cooler, and our smoked Ham is mouthwatering.

Walk through our doors today and take a step back to a simpler time, when customer service wasn’t a gimmick, but the way things were done.

The wood floors creak with stories of lore, our wood stove warms passersby, the aroma of fresh baked breads and donuts entice even the healthiest of folks.

Jar after jar of penny candy tempts young and old alike.

Our Calef’s brand old fashioned jams, jellies, pickle items, bread and soup mixes offer something for everyone.

The wooden pickle barrel is still a focal point in the store. Our Ginger Snaps are renowned for their bite.

Next time you visit New Hampshire, stop by and pay us a visit, you’ll be glad you did. Store hours and directions.

I never really liked brown bread much but I wanted to show my grandkids a traditional baked bean supper. I chose this brown bread and I am so glad I did! I loved it and so did the grandkids. I definitely won't hesitate to buy it again.

First time with this brand.

After years with another brand, I tried House of Stevens. Wish I made the move long ago.

Exactly as Grandma made

My folks says this is exactly as they remember. Saturday night supper is again beans, frank's and brown bread. Delicious!

Brown Bread w/Raisins

My mom and son love this bread. (We’ve purchased the same bread in Plymouth and Sturbridge, Mass). The price at Calef’s was much better and they shipped for Christmas!

Brown Bread

I grew up eating BB in upstate NY and recently decided to try it again as an adult, thus, the order. Your product is fantastic but the shipping is a bit too high from N. Hampshirite to Boise. I did find the BM product at our local Albertsons.
Thank you for your fast delivery response and your delicious product.
