For assistance in answering each day’s question, brush-up on Stone-Buhr’s flour and farmers at www.stone-buhr.com.
One of America’s oldest flour brands, Stone-Buhr’s Washington White All-Purpose Flour is the first major flour product to be certified sustainable by Food Alliance. Milled from wheat sustainably-grown and harvested by family farmers in Oregon, Washington and Idaho dedicated to no-till agricultural methods, the Food Alliance certified flour demonstrates Stone-Buhr’s commitment to preserving the health and prosperity of family farms and the environment.
Bakers can track the origins of their Stone-Buhr Flour at the company’s Find the Farmer website www.findthefarmer.com, which allows customers to enter the unique code from the top of their bag of All Purpose flour in order to identify the actual farms where the milled wheat inside was grown.
