Enjoy Washington State Fair Scones At Home
Fisher traces its beginning back to 1910 when Fisher Flour Mills incorporated in Seattle. A year later, the company started milling operations on Harbor Island, nested between what is now downtown Seattle and the nearby neighborhood of West Seattle along the Duwamish Waterway. The company quickly established itself as the largest flour mill in the western United States.
To promote the use of its high-quality flour, Fisher Flour Mills came up with the idea of selling piping-hot scones at major fairs, starting out at the Panama Pacific Exposition in San Francisco and soon after at the Puyallup Fair in Washington state. Those delicious Fisher Fair Scones quickly attracted a loyal following that continues to this day.
On June 1, 2011, Fisher celebrated their 100th anniversary. A few months later, on Sept. 15, 2011, they sold their 100th millionth scone, and from the very same location — the Washington State Fair in Puyallup — where it all began so many years ago.
