"History of Hatfield Quality Meats"


Pennsylvania
Since 1991
In 1885, John Funk established a pork packing business out on a small dirt road in Hatfield Township, operating under the name of J. M. Funk and Company. (That's John Funk in the center with the bow tie, and it looks like his employees are busy at work making sausage.) His tiny business would eventually evolve into Hatfield Quality Meats! And the topic of the next Hatfield Museum & History Society Community Program will be "History of Hatfield Quality Meats". This presentation will tell the fascinating history of how John Funk's humble little pork business grew into the international business it is today. The program, presented by Society President Larry Stevens, will be held on Tuesday, January 28, 7 PM, in the Hatfield Fire Co. Banquet Hall. (Society Members may also watch it LIVE or recorded on the HMHS Members Facebook Page.) All are welcome to this free presentation and refreshments will be served. (By the way, the small dirt road eventually was named Funks Road.)
