About Martin’s Pretzels
Hard Pretzels made by hand! Taste the unique homemade flavor not found in machine-made pretzels. Martin’s Pretzel Bakery is nestled in Lancaster County, PA, home of the Pennsylvania Dutch known as Amish Country. This is an area where pretzels were first introduced in North America back in the 19th century. Today the tradition continues at Martin’s Pretzel Bakery, with hard pretzel recipes of old, still rolled and twisted by hand.
These pretzels are made exactly as they were done 80 years ago when an uncle started making pretzels in a barn. Pretzel dough is mixed in 150lb batches, twisted by hand and baked to perfection.
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 worthwhile work to do till Jesus comes for us at the Rapture. This is a glorious hope indeed.
“Our second Christmas season at September Farm we discovered Martin’s Pretzels. The pretzels are all made by hand locally and are so delicious. The bucket lent itself so well to become the base to hold all kinds of goodies waiting to be wrapped up in cellophane. The most popular was the “Pretzels & Cheese.” A big jar of mustard for dipping and three bars of cheese along the side. It made the perfect gift tied up in cellophane with a simple plaid Christmas bow. We made more and more every year. To this day it’s one of our most popular gifts!”
