The History of Wheat Montana Near Three Forks

Wheat Montana has been one of the most-loved companies in Montana for a long time. Here's a brief history of the company.

Wheat Montana was founded back in the early 1990s by the Folkvord family, who had been farming wheat in the beautiful rolling hills just north of Three Forks, Montana. They wanted to share the opportunity to enjoy the same fresh flour and breads their family enjoyed with other Montanans, so they added a mill and small bakery in nearby Bozeman to their full-time family farming operation.

Town Pump is another local Montana company that has been expanding in recent years. The company is planning to open it's largest store to date in Bozeman later this year.
