Ramsey Popcorn Co., located in rural Ramsey, Indiana, is a family owned business that has been in operation for over 70 years. You need not look Ramsey up on the atlas, because it won’t be there but this is where Cousin Willie was born and it is where he has stayed – raising hogs, cattle, popcorn, 13 kids, and 30 grandchildren.
With the Sieg Family being a large part of the population Cousin Willie has felt it was his duty to see that everybody has some work to do. The first jobs he gives each of the kids on the farm is picking up rock and cleaning out hog pens. “That way, by the time they get to working at the popcorn plant, they like it just fine.” Today, Ramsey Popcorn Co., Inc. is one of the community’s largest employers.
Having been in the popcorn business for so many years, Ramsey has built a large part of their reputation on reliability of supply and timely delivery. These two factors, along with providing the highest quality product, are Ramsey Popcorn’s highest priorities. Ramsey Popcorn sells roughly 50 million pounds of popcorn a year. The Cousin Willie’s brand is the number one selling microwave popcorn in several regions of the U.S.
