J and M Farm

J and M Farm

Who knew that two city kids would end up making a living raising pigs!!??? We started out as a young couple who moved out to the country in 1977 with absolutely no intention of farming. But fate would have it otherwise. The desire to farm must have been planted by Johnny's childhood memories of visits to his grandpa’s farm in Oklahoma and then fueled by wanting a business which the whole family could participate in. Thus began J&M Farm..

Grandpa's Pork

Grandpa's Pork

It all began when I started supplying quality pork to my friends and family. It wasn't a business for me - it was a way to share great products I'd found with the people around me. After all, I learned from my father - who learned from his father before him - that eating right, like working hard, is just a way of life. We're made to eat a good balance of healthy, lean meats combined with fruits and vegetables. It's simple common sense to our family, and probably to yours as well. With Grandpa's Pork, I've found a way to help others embrace this sensible way of eating by providing them with healthy, high quality, fresh meats.

Northeast Iowa Specialty Meats

Northeast Iowa Specialty Meats is a consortium of like-minded family farmers who have banded together to promote and sell their natural and organic food products.

Selling directly to consumers allows us to capture a profit without going through a packing plant, which juggles animal prices and dilutes profits going back to the farm. The recent meltdown of the hog industry proves this point. With live hog prices at record lows (as low as $.08 per pound!) grocery store meat counter prices remained basically the same.

As organic/natural meat producers, we do not accelerate animal growth with synthetic hormones, or feed any antibiotics or animal byproducts. We are concerned, like a growing number of people, that over use of antibiotics is increasing the ineffectiveness of drugs in fighting disease. We feel the use of growth hormones and animal byproducts in the food chain is increasingly harmful to mankind. Our goal is to produce food products that are the very best tasting in the purest form.

Cookie's Bar-B-Q

Cookies Food Products, manufacturer of "the award-winning sauces America loves to eat," had its start in a small town in Northwest Iowa. L.D. Cook of Wall Lake, Iowa, produced the first batch of Cookies Bar "B""Q" Sauce in his kitchen in 1976. A year later, Speed Herrig, another local Wall Lake resident, took over the sales duties and hit the road selling his outdoor cooking product out of the back of his pickup. His hard work and persistence paid off. In 1984, Herrig bought the company from Cook. At that time the sauce was being bottled in a small building on the edge of town. Today, Cookies products are still produced in Wall Lake, but Herrig and the Cookies crew are housed in a modern 105,000 square foot manufacturing facility.

Amana Meat Shop and Smokehouse

In the 1850s a group of German immigrants settled in a lush river valley in east-central Iowa. They called their new home "Amana" after a passage in the Song of Solomon meaning "to remain faithful." They established seven villages known as the Amana Colonies and lived communally, embracing a pure and simple way of life...including pride in workmanship, a home in the heartland, and sharing good food with good friends.

The tradition of the Amana Meat Shop & Smokehouse began during communal times, when families enjoyed meals together in roomy kitchen houses. Each village had a meat shop and smokehouse where ham, bacon, and sausage were cured the old-world way...with long-held recipes and a commitment to quality.
