About Us

Gary Brandt, Robert Sines, Rodger Merz, Tim Hagedorn and Steve Maddox have a combined 150 years of ham processing experience. ARCK Foods now in it’s 22nd year of business employs that knowledge of their combined former start up business’s Kretchmar, Mickelberry and now Cedar Hollow Foods. With this knowledge ARCK Foods is able to embody the best of those companies and much more. The group says this will be their last start-up and the most successful.
