The Story Behind Our Gourmet Foods
in Norman, OK

Ben Jack Larado Gourmet Foods has been a part of our family since 1981. Lee and Sharon Henry developed the Rockin’ L-H Asparagus Farm into a thriving award-winning business. Today, the Ben Jack Larado product line of pickled goods and custom seasonings can be found in gourmet and specialty shops across the United States. As we continue the heritage of fine products started by Lee and Sharon, our goal is to develop gourmet foods that consider the origin and quality of materials produced.

Ben Jack Larardo takes pride in producing quality products that add a unique touch to your dinner table or special event. We give care and attention to the same details that we look for when buying products for our home. Please visit our website to find the products such as pickled goods and gourmet bbq rubs that created the legacy of Ben Jack or explore a few new options.

The vision for this company began during long car rides from Oklahoma to Houston for cancer treatment. During those difficult years, our family realized that God’s love is deep enough for any challenge and as Christians, we have many reasons to give thanks. God’s faithfulness is ever present. Our prayer for all of our customers is that you will experience God’s best and walk daily in the presence of His love.
