Homer Krehbiel started a small country store in January 1978 on the family farm. The store started with just a few customers and only
offered raw milk, frozen ground beef, cheese, and raw honey. The store offered quality items at a reasonable price and soon the list
of customers started growing.
As interest in all natural processing took off, the business expanded to include a complete natural food line and fresh meat market and
smokehouse. Krehbiels Specialty Meats began to develop recipes and products that were natural, produced the old fashioned way, with
exceptional flavor, taste, and quality.
Significant renovations and expansions took place in 1983 and 2004, with a large USDA slaughtering and processing facility to allow
for more growth and efficiency.
Today this facility is run by the second generation of the Krehbiel Family with oldest son Jeff.
