Purple Ribbon Beef officially started in in the spring of 2016.  However, this family owned business has been in the beef industry for 3 generations. Pete and Cindy Hunter along with their daughters and son-in-law are owners.  Both Pete and Cindy grew up on family farms with cattle and developed a lifelong passion for showing and raising cattle.  As they raised their  two daughters, Sara and Ashley, they passed their  passion and love for the farm on to them.  Their daughters grew up active in 4-H and FFA and showing cattle all across the nation.  Their family vacations were to national cattle shows not the beach. But the family knew no other way as girls became very competitive and showed many state and national champions.  When the time came and the girls were no longer eligible to show at the junior shows, they continued to be apart of the cattle industry. The family was determined to stay in the beef industry and continue building upon what they had worked so hard to achieve.  Therefore, Purple Ribbon Beef was created.  With this opportunity to start a new venture the Hunter family created a business plan on how they could further grow their beef product with many customers feedback stating “this is the best beef I have ever had!”  This plan included partnering with local businesses and being able to reach more customers across the nation.  Their goal is simple,  produce the best beef you’ve ever had, through sustainable farming practices.  Therefore, the beef are fed the corn that is on the same farm they live, all of the cattle are born and raised at the same farm, and processed locally to ensure the freshest highest quality meat to the consumer's’ table.   The family is excited about this venture and partnering with you. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to contact them and they look forward to working with you.
