In 1892, George Roth and his family immigrated from Germany to the old community of Salona in Montague county about 7 miles east of Bowie, Texas, and started a small family farm growing cotton, peanuts, and whatever else they needed to farm to survive.


In 1973, Waldo Roth, George’s grandson, started a dairy on that land.


In 1995, Waldo, along with his son Bryan, started Roth Fertilizer.


Today, the 5th generation of the Roth family continues to live and work on the same land their forefathers homesteaded 130 years ago.
