The year was 1968, “60 Minutes” debuts on CBS, the Beatles release their hit song “Hey Jude,” and a young family man named Roger Ball buys a meat processing facility in a small Idaho town. Over the next 10 years, Roger’s company would become one of the best jerky manufacturing plants in the world as he introduces a jerky brand called “King B.” Over the next 20 years, King B becomes the most recognized brand of jerky in the western United States.
In 2000, Roger and his family felt a change was coming to the meat snack industry; they quickly realized to remain one of the best they would have to make some big changes. In the years that followed, the Ball family’s actions revolutionized the way we see meat snacks today.
The King B brand was sold to a competitor and Golden Valley Natural was born. Golden Valley Natural was created with the simple goal of providing premium, innovative, healthy, and convenient snacks to its loyal customers. Golden Valley pioneered the all-natural and organic movement in the world of meat snacks and remains the largest organic meat snack manufacturer in the USA today. Golden Valley Natural now employs more than 750 jerky experts across three manufacturing facilities, is still family owned, and continues to provide its loyal customers with premium, innovative, healthy, and convenient snacks.
