BARTON — Early hours are part of the bakery business. On Monday, Erin LaPlante was up at 2:45 a.m. baking bread.
By six, the smells of cinnamon and fresh bread wafted through the air, and her display case was filling up. With carafes of freshly brewed coffee in flavors carefully chosen to complement the day’s offerings, the 21-year-old cooking school graduate was ready to open Barton Baking Company’s door for the first time.

It’s been a while since Barton has had a bakery. And this one has been over a year in the making. While the renovation work was underway in the blue building next to E.M. Brown and Son’s hardware store in Barton, Ms. LaPlante sold cookies and bread on weekends from a tent in the parking area.
