It was a sad day for a lot of donut lovers in West Michigan when the Hilltop Bakery in Bailey closed their doors.

After being in business for 87 years, the bakery cooked their last batch of donuts and closed their doors on November 21st of 2021. (You can see the original post about the closing below.)

The bakery was originally opened in 1934. It was a favorite stop for people heading along M-37 in Muskegon County during the morning hours.

Good News -- Donuts are Available Again!

The R Farm Store has moved into the building at 1544 Newaygo Road (M-37) in Bailey that formerly was home to Hilltop Bakery. Their Facebook page says...

The farm store is owned by first generation farmers raising beef, pork and rabbit that is sold in the farm store. Baked goods available including Hilltop Bakery recipes. Locally sourced produce and several Michigan made products and crafts available.
