Mr. Turkey Mr. Turkey

A biography of Bil Mar Foods co-founder Marvin DeWitt

by Lozon, Michael

The story of Zeeland, Michigan born entrepreneur Marvin DeWitt and his brother Bill is one of sheer determination, and of turning handicaps into business opportunities. From a hand-to-mouth existence during the Depression, the brothers started out in business on borrowed money in 1938 by raising some turkeys. Their enterprise had become one of the largest turkey processors in the USA by the time they sold it to Sara Lee Corp in 1987. The DeWitt story also very much is a window on life in a Dutch American Western Michigan community. A $24.95 value. NOW on sale!
