The Hickory Farms Story
The Hickory Farms Story
Richard Ransom founded Hickory Farms in 1951 in the pastoral farm country of Ohio. He started the company by selling hand cut cheeses at local home shows. The rich flavor and uncompromising quality were an immediate hit, and would become the hallmark of the company.
Never one to rest, Mr. Ransom soon added his now famous Beef Summer Sausage to the offering. Tasty mustards and crackers soon followed.
Quick to give a hearty sample or handshake, he soon was selling at county fairs all over Michigan and Ohio. By 1959, Hickory Farms was expanding and opened its first retail store outside Toledo. This taste of the American Heartland was so special that word spread. And so did Hickory Farms stores throughout the country.
Since then, the company's focus on personalized service, customer satisfaction and quality have become legendary. Countless awards have been bestowed on our wide range of products. Customers can now find their favorite sausages and cheeses here online, in catalogs and in leading supermarkets as well as in retail shopping centers throughout the Holiday Season.
Last year, our sixtieth year, we dedicated ourselves to finding new ways to deliver the wholesome goodness and authenticity of Hickory Farms.
Customers can see our commitment through new gift boxes and improved product quality. We're also working hard to be a better global citizen. We've modified our packaging to eliminate waste, using more environmentally friendly materials. And we are committed to a unique partnership with Share our Strength, an organization dedicated to ending childhood hunger in America.
As we look toward our next fifty years, we promise to always search for better ways to surprise you and delight the ones you love.
