Did you know Hidden Valley Ranch is an actual ranch? The company was created back in the 1950s by real-life ranchers Steve and Gayle Henson. The dressing surprisingly got its start in Alaska where Steve Henson worked as a plumbing contractor in the 1940s. He liked to feed his workers and began playing around with the recipe while working with crews building homes in Anchorage.
Moving with his wife Gayle to California in 1954, Henson purchased 100 acres of land outside of Santa Barbara and named it "Hidden Valley Guest Ranch." After feeding his recipe to lodgers there, for many years, Henson eventually was able to turn Hidden Valley Ranch into a business of its own. Starting out as a mail-order company selling dry seasoning packets with instructions on how to make the dressing, Hidden Valley Ranch made its way to all 50 states. Eventually, Hidden Valley made its way to store shelves, and then, in the 1970s, was purchased by the Clorox Company.
The 1980s brought more than just unforgettable fashion, it also was the time when Hidden Valley Ranch finally released bottled dressing, which literally changed the salad dressing game forever.
