John F Martin and Sons is a fourth-generation, family-owned company that prides itself on producing only the finest meat and cheese products. Their favorites include smoked bacon, smoked turkey bacon, scrapple, deli cheeses, cream cheese, spiral carved hams, bone in hams, boneless hams, ham slices, deli meats, roast beef, turkey, chicken, kielbasa, and much more!
John F Martin’s original plant is in Stevens, PA. With more customers asking for more of their delicious foods, JFM purchased the former Valley Forge Flag Company building in Womelsdorf, PA. The building was not tall enough, so the roof was raised by 7′ in some areas and 17′ in others! In July 2013, Scenic Ridge started renovations to convert the building into a 190,000 square foot pork and turkey bacon manufacturing plant. JFM moved in and began making bacon in April 2014, less than 10 months later! We converted another large dry-storage space into cold storge in 2016, and are planning another expansion in 2020.
Scenic Ridge installed truck loads of insulated metal panels, poured all the concrete floors, and fabricated and erected the structural steel. This facility now has over 100,000 square feet of cold storage, many rooms dedicated to bacon processing, ten loading docks with vertical levelers, a two-story office space, mechanical/refrigeration rooms, and space for the maintenance team to work and store equipment and parts.
