J.R. Kelly Company
J.R. Kelly Company was founded in 1933 by Mr. J. R. Kelly. It was situated on
produce row in St. Louis, Missouri, to market horseradish roots for the area growers.
In 1974 a group of local growers purchased the company after the death of Mr. Kelly.
J.R. Kelly Company is located in the heart of horseradish country in Collinsville,
Illinois, just 15 miles from St. Louis, Missouri. Thesite on which J.R. Kelly Company is
located consists of 10 acres of property with 10,000 square feet of cooler space and
