A Brand Born and Raised on a Farm

Bob Evans FarmIt all started on a farm – a real farm in Rio Grande, OH where our founder, Bob Evans, and his wife, Jewell, lived with their six children for nearly 20 years. Bob Evans Farms got its start when Bob began making sausage on his farm in 1948 to serve at a 12-stool diner he owned in nearby Gallipolis.

And more than 60 years after our company was founded, the farm is as important to us as it has ever been. While other brands are returning to the farm, Bob Evans Farms has never left. The farm inspires our fresh, seasonal ingredients and signature favorites, and continues to be the cornerstone of our brand’s past, present, and future.

The spirit of hospitality is deeply embedded in our company’s history. And to this day, a beautiful country setting of nearly 1,000 rolling acres welcomes tens of thousands of visitors each year to the Bob Evans Farm to experience the traditions of an all-American farming community.
