  • Nueske

    In 1933, Grandpa R.C. Nueske couldn't find smoked meats as good as those his family made. So, he decided to market his smoked bacon, ham, poultry and sausage to friends, neighbors and general stores around northern Wisconsin.

    Grandpa was confident his meats would sell despite the crushing Depression taking place. People needed cheering up – something new and exciting to try – so he loaded his truck with his "fancy meats" and took to the road.

    As he built his business, Grandpa taught my Dad, Bob, & Uncle Jim how to select meats with the right combination of leanness and tenderness... secrets of blending spices and curing... every step critical for creating quality smoked meats. Just as important, Grandpa taught them how to create glowing embers of Applewood for perfect smoking and the Nueske's signature smoked flavor.

  • Red Top Berkshire

    In 1944 entrepreneur Edward Haas purchased a run-down farm in Racine County, WI and promptly enlisted his seven children to white wash the buildings and foundations. Mr. Haas and his children all had bright red hair, thus through a bit of whimsy, he had all the buildings roofed in bright red shingles; thus naming the farm Red Top Farms.

    Concurrent to raising beef, pork, chicken and grain on the farm, Edward also owned and operated two aluminum foundries, a cast iron foundry and a screw machine shop. Drawing from his experience in the foundry business as well as his farming experience, he produced the “Haas Atomic Tractor” from 1947-1951.

    Today the white buildings and red shingles of Red Top Farms are still standing along side three generations of the Haas family as they continue to follow his dream and entrepreneurial spirit and provide you with the very best meat possible.

  • Duroc Pork

    Premium quality Compart Duroc™ pork is the result of a carefully managed pork breeding program, managed and perfected by a family farm. Compart Duroc™ hogs are bred, born and raised on small farms where our family members are involved in the day-to-day management of their stock. The breeding program is the result of 55+ years of combining the very best purebred lines of the Duroc breed.

    Compart Family Farms™ have also conducted extensive research and development to create a proprietary Compart Duroc™ feeding program. This feeding program optimizes both the pig’s performance and its meat quality. This, coupled with raising the pigs in comfortable, environmentally stable facilities, reduces stresses that adversely affect muscle quality.
