Welcome! Prairie Center Meats is a meat company located in Edgerton, Kansas. Our name came from the little community that started in the mid-1800’s just up the road from where we live. My great-great grandparents lived there, as did successive generations of my family until the community was closed to make room for a munitions plant during World War 2.
My husband, Chad, and I both grew up with agriculture all around us. His experiences were through the 4H program, which led him to getting a degree in Animal Science at K-State. My parents and grandparents were grain farmers with a small beef herd. A life of agriculture led me to get a minor in Agribusiness at Mid-America Nazarene University in addition to my elementary education degree. We’re not just some folks who decides to buy a cow - we have deep roots in our community and in farming. We continue to cultivate this love of farming in our own children and others that cross our path through 4H and our business.
We have specifically chosen the breeds on our farm for meat quality. We raise Angus beef cattle for their marbling, Tunis and Suffolk sheep for a well flavored and meaty chop, Berkshire pork for the overall flavor and juiciness they bring to the table and Cornish Cross chickens for our most tender meat. Our egg laying flock currently is primarily production reds but we also have some Orpingtons, Barred Rocks and blue-egg laying chickens Americaunas. Our son is researching breeds so that we can hone in on one breed to raise and breed. We also currently have a small orchard and garden but hope to grow those in the future.
