A gluten-free and often plant-based cottage food bakery.
A weekly order bakery offering small batch, hand crafted, artisan baked goods – breads, sweets and treats on St Simons Island, Georgia. See a sampling of menu items HERE, but know they are ever changing!
Each week’s official menu is at the bottom of this page!
The gluten-free baking all began in 2012. My first professional bakery was born in 2016 – Free Food Georgia. In 2018, it transformed into a physical location (The Green Spork) outside Savannah. We sold it in 2021 after buying a home on SSI in 2020. After several months of rest and planning…. I started baking again and launched Beach Bum Bakery!! I’m a Beach Bum and I bake, so it makes sense, hey? 🙂

Kimberley says“I eliminated wheat from my regular diet in 2012 in an effort to reduce joint inflammation, clear my foggy mind and improve digestive health. I was an avid baker before this major dietary change and have spent years altering recipes for myself and my family.”

JUNE 8, 2023
No menu for the time being…. I’m “Practicing the Pause”. Flours & bakery bag mixes are available during this time.
Many of you know that my husband accepted a job back at Gulfstream Savannah four months ago. That move threw our life into a little tizzy, but we found a solid rhythm. I had a major deal percolating to create a permanent home for Beach Bum Bakery in Brunswick, as well as offer opportunities for other food entrepreneurs. That project kept me distracted and focused. It fell apart due to circumstances well beyond my control. I’ve moved through anger, disbelief, and sadness this week and it all robbed me of my baking joy. A normal week is full of optimistic planning, happy communication and sparkly production & packaging…. this week was not that.
So, I’m going to press pause.
Definition of pause: a temporary stop in action or speech.
It’s time to lick my wounds and regroup a little, like I’ve done many MANY times before! There’s a purpose in it all. A new opportunity or a chance to solidify the current one. I don’t’ know…. Yet, but I will.
Here’s a blog post I wrote in 2022 about this concept, so you understand where I’m coming from with this!! https://kibbyjardine.com/2022/02/02/practice-the-pause/
YES, I will be back baking eventually (although I don’t know what it looks like exactly….)
YES, there will be B’fast Cookies, occasional Cinnamon Rolls and breads in early July!

ALLERGENS & INGREDIENTS
I disclose allergens on menus and list all ingredients with care/instructions or directly on the item. If you have a severe allergy or intolerance beyond gluten, please reach out to confirm AND make a note of your food trigger on your order email. Then I can take extra precautions!
Cross contamination for nuts is probable, as there are ample nuts in my kitchen.
Corn allergies: the powdered sugar and one flour blend that I use contain a small amount of cornstarch. Please reach out if you have a corn allergy, so we can discuss.
