Over the years Ken says that it was a lot of work to keep things going and adapting to government regulations over the years meant the ability to adapt to change. Now after 35 years, Ken is ready for retirement.

He is now liquidating assets and preparation products such as packaging and sausage casings. Ken would like to extend a word of thanks to all his customers that supported him over the years for their patronage.
