History of Bates Ranch & Wheat Springs Bakery
In operation since 2006, Wheat Springs Bakery is a domestic kitchen licensed by the Oregon Department of Agriculture. The wheat for our products is grown exclusively on Bates Ranch; a family farm located in Condon, Oregon since 1948.
Searching for a way to diversify her family’s wheat products and inspired by a Google search that turned up recipes using wheat berries, Donna Bates began experimenting in her personal kitchen; trying to create a healthier version of the deep fried standard. Through months of trial and error, and with the assistance of the Oregon Food Innovation Center, she developed a one-of-a-kind air-popping technique. Wheat Springs Bakery’s Popped Wheat Berries were born.
