Meet the Family
Purple Ribbon Beef is a multigenerational, family owned farm. We pride ourselves on raising premium beef from birth to plate. We pay careful attention to every detail as we raise the beef because that is what makes the difference. We want you to enjoy your beef so don't hesitate to reach out to us with questions. We look forward to meeting you.
Purple Ribbon Beef is dedicated to providing premium beef to your table. Our beef tastes better because we pay attention to the little details as every animal is born on our farm and in our care until we deliver them to the local processor.
My family loves Purple Ribbon Beef. It's noticeably better than store-bought beef. It's juicier, fuller, and has a fresher taste. I also love trying out new/local items from the General Store. They always have fun local products like candles, honey, and granola.
Great family with a great product. Buy local.
I bought a roast at the Clear Lake Farmer's Market. It went in the Crock-Pot with potatoes and carrots. It was awesome! Now I'm using the leftovers for Barley Soup!

I just grilled a couple tenderloins from Purple Ribbon Beef. The steaks were great. We highly recommend Purple Ribbon Beef.
