Here’s a little Polk’s history, in honor of #ThrowbackThursday!
As a young boy, John Polk watched his parents transform what started as a retirement project of preparing hickory smoked ham into a successful business. John saw the potential in what his parents had started, so in 1974 he took the reins of the company. By keeping his parents' secret recipe for the hickory smoked flavor, and adding his own recipe for success, John has steadily grown the product offerings over the years. Now Polk's Meat Products provides a wide variety of smoked meats that drive even the pickiest customers back for more.
In 2011, after thirty-seven years as the CEO, John assumed the role as Chairman, opening the door for his daughter Julie to become CEO. Under Julie’s leadership, Polk’s looks to further its position as the largest smoked meat processor in the State of Mississippi and expand into new markets nationwide!
Stacey has worked with Polk’s Meats since 1999 as the Director of Accounting and Office Administration. She works with and supports Polk’s customers, the Polk’s sales team and all Polk’s employees.
Stacey received an Associate’s Degree from Holmes Community College and a B.S. from Mississippi State University. She has been married to Jimmy for over 20 years. They have two sons Mac (age 17) and Jackson (age 11). They live in Magee, Mississippi.
