Way back in the late 1970’s our founder Jerry Geatches had a dream. He wanted to be in the meat business. He retrofit our families barn into a meat cutting operation with his bare hands. Burning the midnight oil he forged a business based on service and fairness. At the start we farm butchered beef and hogs and custom cut and wrapped them for folk’s freezers. It was tuff sledding and not much fun.
As the years ticked by we built our first smoke house. We sugar cured hams and bacons by the ton. As we outgrew our smoker we would build another one always bigger and better than the last.
By end of the 1980’s we were busy all the time. The phone rang around the clock. We hired help and added on the barn four times. Then the game changer for us was when a local FFA chapter asked if we could make some Smoked snack sticks for a fundraiser. We started with three flavors, Country Delight, Ham and pepperoni. Our whole family was involved as we used to put stick-on labels on plastic pouches then the next day we would stuff the finished product into the pouches and vacuum pack them 6 at a time which took about a minute. We were in high production.
In 2016 we are celebrating our 38th year in the meat business. We have shipped over 75 million smoked snacks, all for fundraising. We have added two brand new flavors making the total offered 16 flavors! (That’s a long way from just three.)
