They’re Making Ramen Noodles In South Dakota
Albany Farms manufactures and sells ramen noodles made from US-grown wheat. Albany Farms is based in California, but the company’s Twisted Noodles are produced in a Belle Fourche, S.D., processing plant. The company began as an importer before transitioning to making its own products and converted the million-dollar plant for this purpose.
Specializing in ramen has a lot of appeal. The noodles are incredibly versatile and can be eaten as-is directly from the package, or they can be customized into a variety of dishes with limitless add-ins. It’s even possible to branch out beyond soup to create ramen-based casseroles, granola, and desserts.
To date, Albany Farms is the only ramen plant in South Dakota. The first Twisted Noodles were made in August 2022, and production has scaled up to over 350,000 individual units per factory shift. Now, a factory that once had two workers employs well over 100.
Unlike most instant noodle companies, Albany Farms aims to source all the ingredients domestically. Currently, Twisted Noodles are made from Kansas-grown wheat, though all vegetables and spices are imported. Using American-made noodles was the main objective, and they hope to eventually work primarily with wheat farms in South Dakota.
Current flavor options include beef, chicken, veggie, and shrimp, sold in cups and flat packages. They’re priced around $0.80 per 2.25 oz cup of noodles and can be found at various retailers, including Target, Walmart Canada, H.E.B, and Dollar Tree.
