Broadbent B & B Foods
In April of 1999, Ronny and Beth Drennan became the owners of Broadbent B & B Foods then located in Cadiz, Kentucky. The Broadbent family began selling their Country Ham, Bacon and Sausage on their farm in 1909. In 1967 they became USDA inspected and entered interstate commerce via a mail order catalog. The business has changed considerably since the Drennan’s purchase. They immediately put up a website, www.broadbenthams.com which now is the largest generator of sales, they have expanded the mail order catalog and mail four per year. They have also developed a wholesale division, allowing consumers to find Broadbent products in gourmet markets and grocery stores across the Northeast and have shipped their products throughout the United States. The Drennan’s moved their business to Kuttawa in 2008.
The new facility allowed them to expand their business and now employ over twenty people. They now offer a gourmet market and deli with seating at their Kuttawa location. Viewing windows allow customers to observe their processing rooms. The Drennans also offer local catering.
Located on Mary Blue Road, just off of I 24, Exit 40 in Kuttawa, Kentucky, the Drennans invite you to stop by and sample their wide variety of fancy food products. Hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. They can be reached by phone at 800-841-2202.
