Yoders canned meats.
We have purchased quite a few different items from them.Tried the bacon,hamburger,turkey,and chicken.I was becoming more curious about the products.In short I wanted to see the place and check if they had a retail store.
This is where the story begins.Try to find ANY information about a company named Yoders online.I will help you out.You can't. It is impossible because it does not exist other than a po box number in Ohio.
Well if Yoders does not exist where are all the Yoder products from,and how did they get the Yoders label?
Again I am glad you asked.After a few hours of searching I finally figured out how to narrow it down.Each can I have has a USDA meat processing number.Those numbers all lead to only one place. Order Online
In short someone out there has requested them to make a private label(they even advertise they will do this on there website)named Yoders.
Why does the label matter you ask? It doesn't Unless you want to pay more for the exact same product.
Yoders Hamburger $84.95 12 Cans/Case of fresh REAL Canned Hamburger/Ground Beef
OR directly from the source...
$68.70 Homestyle Canned Meat 12-Pack (28 oz.)
The best part.If you order directly you can mix and match 12 cans of Chicken,Beef,Pork,Taco filling,Beef and Gravy(Yoders beef chunks),or Turkey....and save a good chunk of change.
So Yoders is simply Werling & Sons,inc under a private label,and yes they have a physical location and a retail store...in Ohio.Mystery solved.
Welcome to Werling & Sons, Inc.

IE every person who has purchased a Yoders canned meat product was scammed around 30% off of the top or more.Just buy from the source.
I just called Werling & Sons because I was curious why canned bacon was not on there website.They do indeed can bacon,and according to the gentleman I talked to on the phone are the ONLY company in the United States to do so.He could not give me a price though until Monday"The guys at the slaughter house left at noon,and I am not sure on the price of bacon it varies with the cost of pork.".
INGO label bacon anyone lol?
I will call Monday and get the price.

And as if the name thing isn't confusing enough, Yoder's in Shipshewana sells the other Yoder's canned meats in their store.
Good job on straightening it all out. I knew they were not the same company, but it is nice to know the whole story.
