In 1939, Olav and Mildred Fosdal purchased a little bakery in downtown Stoughton, Wisconsin from Hans Romnes, which was named the Home Bakery because the Romnes family lived in the upstairs of the A-frame building.
The Home Bakery then became known as Fosdal Home Bakery.
After Olav and Mildred’s son, Gerry, graduated high school, he became a full time employee at the bakery. He married Beverly in 1963, and they took over the business in 1976.
Gerry was in charge of production, and Bev handled the bookkeeping. The Fosdals built the business into not only a community hub, but also a supplier of baked goods to many other local businesses.
In 2005, Joseph Crubaugh, a third-generation baker from Dodgeville, Wisconsin, purchased the bakery after many years of working for Gerry and Bev.
