In 1981 Lee & Sharon Henry started the Rockin LH Asparagus Farm growing fresh asparagus to sell to locals & markets. However, they had too much for the locals to purchase and not enough for the grocery store markets, so they started making recipes that called for asparagus. Out of that venture they developed 2 flavors of pickled asparagus, one Original Pickled Asparagus & one Hot & Spicy Picked Asparagus, 8 different & unique flavors of mustards, Smokin Gun Jalapeno Mustard, Oriental Fire & Lace a Hot & Sweet Mustard, Hickory Canyon a Smokey Jalapeno, Rojo's Ruckus a Chipotle Mustard, Blazin Chile is a Hot Pepper Mustard, & Yellow Jack a Rich & Robust Mustard, 2- unique flavors of dressings, White Lightnin Jalapeno & Asparagus Dressing & Breath O Fire Horseradish Dressing. They invented 4 Pickled Garlic items, an Original Pickled Garlic nuggets & Hot & Spicy Pickled Garlic nuggets, Trail Boss which has the Pickled Garlic & Sweet Hot sliced Jalapeno's mixed, and our Lonesome Vaccaro's Italian Garlic, an asparagus jalapeno pepper jelly. There is a Candied Jalapeno that is addictive! 3 flavors of Dry Meat Rubs for pork, beef & chicken/fish, and 2 BBQ sauces, a Mild & a Spicy. Their own special blend of chili seasoning and 2 sizes of the World Famous Bloody Mary mix with an asparagus spear in each bottle. There's a cookbook that has recipes for all their products and some special family & friend recipes too. Not to mention the western themed gift boxes loaded with Ben Jack Larado's Gourmet Foods for Christmas, Family Re-Unions, or Birthdays.
They had sold their Ben Jack Larado products at the Oklahoma State Fair, Tulsa State Fair, Iowa State Fair, 3-An Affair of The Heart shows and many others over the 30 years in business. They also operated the Big River Emporium country store and had 2 Bed & Breakfasts on their home place near Stidham OK, not to mention all the UPS shipping to Gourmet and Specialty Stores & individual customers across the U.S. After 30 years of lots of love and hard work they decided to close the store and B&B's and start enjoying life, spending more time with family & friends. They retired!
I had been working with Lee & Sharon for 7 years and my husband & I loved their products so much that we purchased the Rockin LH Asparagus Farm & Big River Emporium food portion and moved it to our home near Checotah on February 11, 2011. We have the same business ethics as Lee & Sharon, "OUR CUSTOMERS COME FIRST" with the same Quality, Dependability & Service they used in their business. You will still find our Ben Jack Larado Gourmet Food products at the Iowa State Fair in August, Oklahoma State Fair & Tulsa State Fair in September, An Affair of The Heart shows in Oklahoma City in October & Heart of Tulsa in November. We still have Gourmet & Specialty Shops across the U.S. that carry our products & Big River Emporium .com services our retail customers on line 24/7.
We know you will enjoy the unique Southwest flavor of the Ben Jack Larado Gourmet Food line that the Henry's put so much love into creating. Please give us call if you have any questions about the products at our 800-682-3881, 7 days a week from 9 am to 9 pm.
Looking forward to visiting with you.
