Friday Fun Farm Facts

What can be produced on one acre* of land? 2,694 pounds of wheat.

One bushel of wheat produces about 42 pounds of flour, which can be used to make 42 loaves of bread or 42 pounds of traditional pasta. One bushel of whole wheat yields even more: 64 pounds of flour to make 64 loaves of bread or 64 pounds of pasta.

*An acre is about the size of a football field.
