The Start of Rancher’s Prime

Heritage Beef & Pork Delivery

Our co-founder Carl is a born-and-raised Kansas country boy turned meat aficionado turned entrepreneur. Time and time again, he’s paid top dollar for subpar steak. Occasionally, he can find an excellent cut of meat, but even at his favorite steakhouses, they’ve fallen short. It wasn’t the chef, the seasoning, or the grill’s fault; it was simply the poor quality of the meat. He’d learned the hard way that exorbitant prices don’t guarantee you a great steak consistently. But, why not?

It turns out that even 5-star, world-renowned steakhouses are victims of the marketplace mentality. Price and profitability, not quality, often determine the selections they make. Compromise is the order of the day. So, where do those legendary steaks come from?

The rancher.

Carl set out on a mission and gathered an elite network of ranchers that met strict quality standards like traceability, heritage beef and pork breeding, and more. This was how Rancher’s Prime formed, giving you access to exclusive cuts while supporting stewards of the land.

“This idea started with a desire to support stewards of the land who didn’t have the manpower or the technology to distribute their product on a national scale. Now, everyone can enjoy the fruits of their labor and appreciate the talent of these humble and hardworking Americans.”
