You have to admit, just the name "Norwegian Bachelor Farmer" makes you smile.
But do you know just what a Norwegian bachelor farmer is all about?
Well don't feel bad... not many people do.
One person who does is Garrison Keillor.
According to Garrison these farmers are the fathers of "Powdermilk Biscuits" (trademarked?),
"Made from whole wheat raised in the rich bottomlands of the Lake Wobegon river valley by Norwegian bachelor farmers;
so you know they're not only good for you, but pure . . . mostly.
Buy them ready-made in the big blue box with the picture of the biscuit on the cover,
or in the brown bag with the dark stains that indicate freshness.
Whole wheat that gives shy persons the strength to get up and do what needs to be done.
Heavens they're tasty, and expeditious!"
There is a catchy little song to go along with these biscuits,
and if you are intrigued by this, please refer to
