Established in 1914, in Owensboro, KY, Charles Field created the Field® brand with two employees, a horse drawn carriage and a small slaughtering house. His meat products were an immediate success.

But it wasn’t just the quality of his products that set Mr. Field apart. He believed that giving back to his employees and the community were equally important ingredients to having a successful company. He actively promoted employee education and advancement and was a major philanthropist in the Owensboro, KY region, donating money and resources to the community.
