Stoner Family Wheat Farms
Gordon Stoner and his wife Bonnie are the fourth generation on the family farm near Outlook, Montana, which celebrated its centennial in 2009. Gordon grows durum and pulse crops on the glacial plains just south of the Canadian border using a no-tillage system that Gordon says has improved his soils, increased yields and helped make the farm far more sustainable. Gordon is a past President of the Montana Grain Growers Association and the National Association of Wheat Growers and currently serves on USDA’s Agricultural Policy Advisory Committee.
The hardiest wheat, durum has a rich amber color and high gluten content. Hard amber durum (HAD) sets the “gold standard” for premium pasta products, couscous and some Mediterranean bread.
