Wild Bill's Story
The Wild Bill's brand traces its roots back to 1955 in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Balwell's Butcher Shop served only the finest and freshest meats in the heart of Dutch Country. Over several decades, Balwell’s developed a reputation as a company that served excellent products with friendly service. Balwell’s was very successful in the local marketplace.
1983 Balwell’s began making premium beef jerky and meat snacks - the best beef jerky that money could buy. Wild Bill's is best known for long strips of premium beef jerky sold in the now famous mason jars all across the northeast. Five years later, the company changed its name to Wild Bill’s Foods, Inc. What began as a local marketplace favorite grew and Wild Bill’s Foods developed a reputation in the meat snack industry for producing products that even the most discriminating meat snack connoisseurs could appreciate and enjoy.
Monogram Foods Solutions purchased Wild Bill’s Foods in 2009. Monogram Foods, one of the nation's leading manufacturers of branded, licensed and co-packed meat snacks in the U.S. meat industry, remains committed to the original Wild Bill's brand - quality beef, marinated in rich seasoning, then hand strung and smoked in a real smokehouse. Proudly made in Martinsville, Virginia, Monogram Foods continues the tradition by producing the best products and providing outstanding customer service.
