A Little More About Our Founding Story

Stephen Robinson founded Newlight Breadworks out of his family's home kitchen in Bridgehampton, NY in early 2020. Stephen started baking small batches of sourdough boules and hand delivering these daily to Babinski Farm Stand down the road. Buoyed by local demand, Newlight Breadworks quickly grew to serve restaurants, farm stands, and retail locations throughout the Hamptons and Suffolk County. 

Newlight Breadworks expanded its growth with the support of the local East End Food Institute in Southampton, NY and soon moved production to the Stony Brook University Food Business Incubator in Calverton, NYWhile the company initially carried the name "Hampton Sourdough" with its origins in sourdough, the expansion soon included a larger range of products. Out of Hampton Sourdough was born "Newlight Breadworks." Newlight Breadworks' first client, Babinski Farm Stand, is located on Newlight Lane in Water Mill, NY. 

Proudly Supporting Its Community

Newlight is committed to serving the local community on the East End of Long Island. Each week, Newlight delivers fresh bread to the Springs Food Pantry and the Montauk Food Pantry. Newlight has also contributed bread to Southampton Fresh Air Home, the Southampton Animal Shelter Foundation, Green Beetz, and Two Forks and a Cork at the Parrish Art Museum amongst other local Hamptons organizations.
