  • 2016 was our first full year in the new 14,000 sq. ft. addition.  The addition further streamlined our process and allows for additional capacity.
  • 2016 saw the wildly successful Goetta Slices take hold in the marketplace.  The 18 oz. pack contains 12 each, 1.5 ounce patties sealed in an airtight, Cryovac film.  Convenience at a great price rule here.
  • 2016 was a year for tuning up the Sausage Factory property.  We stepped back and looked at cosmetic improvements such as painting, signage, and new fencing.  We do this not only because we are proud but also to show our commitment to the Cincinnati' Camp Washington neighborhood where we reside.
  • 2016: Our street address (Straight Street) saw the additional name "Elmer Hensler Way" added.  This was both an honor and a tribute to our founder and president

Smoked Kielbasa, 6.4 OZ. Smoked Sausage with Real Cheddar Cheese, and the 6.4 OZ. Beef Smoked Sausage.  Each package contains 2 fully cooked sausage links.  Just the right amount for busy people and empty nesters.  Mix and match.  Try them all!
  • 2017 will see a new sausage packaging machine added.  Packaging machines are the "workhorses" of our business and are major purchases.  We all gather and work out the details to ensure that we get the very best equipment that delivers the quality standards we expect.
