In 1973, Cliff Phelps, his wife Betty, and their two sons embarked on a dream to start a family wholesale packing plant to serve the community with only the best in quality meats.
They started out in a block building along with a one ton truck and traveled from store to store pedaling items from the back of the truck. In 1974, they expanded the business and built a custom processing plant to serve the locals. A few years later they began to produce a family recipe for spicy Hot Links as well as a variety of other smoked sausage products in an on-site sausage kitchen facility.
Over forty years, three generations of family, and twenty two employees later, Mountain View has grown into a state-of-the-art Hot Link, Smoked Meat, and Beef and Pork Distribution Center for restaurants and grocery stores in many areas across the country.
