Montana’s senior U.S. Senator Max Baucus announced Wednesday that Wheat Montana is his latest “Montana Jobs Economic Engine.” The family owned and operated company based in Three Forks employs 165 people in Montana.
Wheat Montana took farming to the next level by adding value every step of the way from milling to processing and selling its grains through wholesale and retail channels as well as through its franchised delis. The owners also recently bought, and renovated, the 100 year old Sacajawea Hotel in Three Forks adding 35 full time jobs in the area.
“Wheat Montana is truly an engine for Montana jobs across the state. The Folkvord family has looked this tough economy in the eye and made brave choices to stay competitive and keep hiring workers either on the farm, mill or bakery and now in their hotel. Their success story inspires me to do even more to foster a business-friendly environment where Wheat Montana and other economic engines can continue to drive our state’s economy forward,” Baucus said.
Baucus’ Montana Jobs Economic Engine Initiative builds upon his ongoing legislative work to support Montana’s businesses along with his Montana Economic Development Summits.
Previous companies highlighted by Baucus include Columbia Falls-based Nomad Global Communications Solutions, Stinger Welding in Libby, Big Equipment Company in Havre, in Harlowton, Torgerson’s family-owned farm implement dealer in Ethridge, and SRS Crisafulli, a Glendive manufacturing plant.
