About the Vollwerth & Baroni's Company
1915, At the Height of the Copper Boom, German immigrant
Richard Vollwerth started a business in the
Keweenaw Peninsula, and was determined to make
a name for himself. More than 90 years
later, copper is history-but the Vollwerth
name is known throughout the
Upper Peninsula, and beyond.
For more than nine decades,
Vollwerth & Co. of Hancock has been preparing delectable
sausage that now hold a place of honor among other Upper Peninsula
epicurean luminaries such as pasties, prune tarts,
nisu and saffron buns.
In 1935, Paul J. Baroni
started making his famous spaghetti sauce and it's been a Copper
Country favorite ever since.
Homemade quality from the freshest ingredients money could buy!(the
secret recipe he brought from the old country didn't hurt either)
Today, we are proud of the fact that all of our
products are still handmade from the freshest ingredients around and
we still follow the secret recipes that Paul J.
Baroni brought from the old country.
The Creation of the Vollwerth & Baroni's Company
Vollwerth & Company, purchased the
Baroni Company and continues to manufacture the spaghetti
sauce utilizing the same equipment as well as continued
manufacturing of superior sausage in an expanded facility in
Hancock, Michigan so you can continue to enjoy the same products you
have come to love!
