Fartless Factory - About Us
During the 70s and 80’s, Idaho was known for its fantastic pheasant hunting. In 1984 we had several of our friends here for the traditional opening day hunt. The celebration that evening included a large pot of chili made with beans raised on our farm. The next morning three of the revelers were walking down the drive toward the barn and all simultaneously expelled their pent up gasses. One turned to me and said, “Damn, you really have to take the farts out of these beans” without a moments hesitation I replied “You bet, next year I will grow Fartless beans!” With that, Fartless was born! My wife made up some large sacks on which we penned Fartless Pinto Beans and we gave them away as gifts. The next year, everyone wanted more and even offered to pay for them. Immediately we went in to R&D and in October of 1986, we had our first sale of Fartless Products to a Grocery store in Sun Valley, Idaho.
Since that time we have expanded our product line to over 20 items with new items being added every year. Among those products are the original famous Fartless Chili Makin’s and our award winning Fartless Black Bean Salsa. We have grown from packaging product on our back porch to the large warehouse we operate from today. However, we are still a family owned business and plan to stay that way.
As we grew, we found it extremely difficult to have a steady supply of our cloth bags. Therefore, we now make our own. This requires us to order large rolls of fabric from North Carolina and cut them into bag sized printable swatches. We then screen print the bags and have them hand sewn locally. We stuff, fill and close the bags here at the Fartless Factory. We purchase all of our food ingredients locally and our Fartless Candy Log is made to our specifications at a local candy factory. Even our pottery is made nearby. We do this ensure you get a top quality product, 100% made in the USA.
We keep our food product line as pure as possible without any added color stabilizers or preservatives. We believe this not only makes our products healthy, but enhances the flavor as well. In the future, we even plan to add a few certified organic products to the Fartless line. Our goal is simple: We will provide you with a top quality product, packed full of humor.
To promote Fartless Products we do many wholesale and retail shows every year. Please check our schedule and stop and say hello.
