Klements Garlic Summer Sausage

The Klement’s Sausage story began 60 years ago when three brothers – John, George and Ron Klement purchased a small sausage company in South Milwaukee. The word about the genuine, old country flavor spread quickly and before long, Klement’s was a favorite. They’ve grown a lot since that small 6-person operation, but haven’t lost sight of what made their family business a success. Hard work, dedication, and perfectly seasoned sausage – that’s a true recipe for a winning business!
