Place of Origin

Maker Clover Farm Stores Corporation

Maker Details Clover Farm was established in late 1926 early 1927 in Cleveland Ohio. By 1929 is started to expand into Western PA. Higgins-Babcock-Hurd Company was one of the main distributors for the company before changing to Greene-Babcock Co. It still existed in the 1950s and 1960s. As far as I know it does not exist today because I could not find a company website or any other history relating to the stores.
