The Hickory Farms Story
It was in 1950, at a home show, where Richard K.
Ransom, the founder of Hickory FarmsŪ, first got a taste of what people
wanted in terms of specialty foods. He was selling cheese at the
hand cut, hand wrapped and sold while the cheese still carried rich
full-bodied flavour and fresh, mouth-watering aroma.
It was like going back in time, when old-fashioned grocery stored hosted
40 - 200 pound "wheels" of cheese. The cheese's fragrance would permeate
the air, and the customer would get a small sampling before they made
their purchases. Things were easy going then, and simpler. And that's
the flavour, of a time gone by, that Mr. Ransom wanted to capture.
The original Hickory FarmsŪ concept was to give people a taste of
old-fashioned quality and value in a country store atmosphere where
personal, friendly service places the customer first. Over the years,
the concept is still as strong as it ever was.
But now we can offer a larger line of specialty foods, which look, smell
and taste as good as they did in Grandma's day. Our cheeses, meats,
crackers, candies, gift packs and other fine products will always be
tastes that are unique and of the highest quality. Because that's the
kind of old-fashioned value people want, and always will get from
