Martin's Pretzel Bakery
The bakery is family-owned. Henry Martin started the business in the 30’s. He passed it on to his nephew, Lloyd Martin, in the 70’s. Eleven years later, he in turn sold it to his brother, Clarence, the present owner. We work appx. 8-9 hour days, starting at 6 AM. We usually have one evening shift a week. A crew of 13 employees is ideal. We all get to do the various jobs so no one is twisting, etc. all day long. NO, we do not twist pretzels in our sleep because we do it enough during the day! We sometimes sing hymns and gospel songs as we work . We find this a worth-while work to do till Jesus comes for us at the Rapture. This is a glorious hope indeed. Are you washed in His blood? Jesus paid it all!

Uncle Henry's Pretzel Bakery was started in 1983. It is family owned and operated. Our bakery is unique because the pretzels are still made the old fashioned way - by hand. They are hand rolled and twisted from the finest ingredients and made by the Pa Dutch Mennonite and Amish people. All of our hand made pretzels are made with sourdough. The pretzels are slowly baked in a stone hearth oven and then put through a supervised drying process which gives them a delicious crunch and wholesome taste.
