A Brief History of Sivko Fur Incorporated


My father, Leslie Farkas, went to college in Hungary to learn to be a tanner. He received a Master’s degree in chemistry for tanning. My mother, Siv, also has two chemical engineering degrees. My father started tanning in Europe during World War II; he then immigrated to Australia in 1949 where he owned and operated a tannery for over 20 years. 

 

In 1969, my parents came to the United States where they continued working in the fur industry. In 1976, we moved to our current location in the Canisteo valley where we built our tannery.

 

I have spent my entire life growing up and working in the fur industry and my family’s tannery. My father passed away in 2004. In 2005, after completing my education, I took over the business. My mother continues to be a consultant and on the board of directors. We are still a family owned and operated business.

Our current staff of employees has over 140 years of combined tanning experience. Most of them were trained by my parents. We take great pride in our work and customer service. Since 2007, we have grown and expanded our facilities. We at Sivko Fur Inc. strive to provide the best products for you and your hunters. I firmly believe it’s my name and family’s reputation on the line. I look forward to earning your business and developing a long term relationship.

 

Sincerely,

Ann Farkas
