Before there was a WoodenKnife Company
there was the WoodenKnife Cafe in Interior, which has a view of the
Badlands of South Dakota. At the cafe their specialty is authentic Indian
tacos made from a special fry bread recipe. After sampling the delicious
fry bread, tourist and locals alike encouraged Ansel WoodenKnife to
market the Indian Fry Bread Mix.
Ansel took their advice and started the WoodenKnife manufacturing
plant, located behind the cafe. As with any small business it took a
lot of hard work. Ansel WoodenKnife felt and still feels strongly about
giving customers an exceptional quality product right down to the
One packaging option is a version of the Native American pouch bag.
This option gives a small look into the Sioux Indian culture.
Back when the Sioux Indians were still migrating with the buffalo, pouch
bags were used to store and transport grain and other goods. The
other packaging option, although more main stream still has a
personal touch. Ansel personally designed the blue and yellow box
himself, using hand-drawn artwork.
The WoodenKnife Company has again
taken on a new challenge. This one came
about because food service providers were
asking for a frozen dough. We at WoodenKnife
are proud to announce that a frozen fry bread
dough is now available with the same authentic
taste that hasmade the original dry WoodenKnife
Fry Bread Mix so popular.
