In 2006 Glendive's Farm to Table purchased Bud & Jean Clem's Western Trails Cowboy Food business as a perfect fit. The Clem's chuckwagon catering business produced their finger licking good Rustler Bean Sauce and they shared all their recipes. We are pleased to carry on their tradition of quality products and healthy recipes from the old west. Our goal is to use locally grown or Montana grown products and promote sustainable agriculture practices.
