The Henry Family Farm was established on August 1, 1949 by Wintha and Verna (Valle) Henry. They began raising a small herd of cattle, and the tradition continues with the addition of hogs and sheep. The multi-generational farm continues to grow as the family works to hold fast to the traditions of the independent rancher.
In order to continue the tradition, some added value businesses have been added to the cattle ranch. These include custom feed sales, sale of live animals, butcher beef, pork and lamb, and custom cuts of meat. Henry Feed and Henry Meat Co, LLC are all under the umbrella of the Henry Family Farms.

Henry Meat Co, LLC provides you with quality beef, pork and lamb in large to small quantities. There are so many reasons to buy 'fresh from the farm'. It is better for your family, for your health, for our economy, and for the animals themselves. Purchase through our website or call us for detail on how to have our farm fresh meat shipped to your home.
Our beef are pasture raised, with no added hormones. Our steers have access to grass and hay, along with grain supplement for healthy growth and excellent marbling. No steer is confined to a small pen, they are free to roam in large pastures where they can eat all of the grass and hay they desire. At no time are they put into lots and fed grain to boost their weight. Steers, at the time of butcher, will weigh approximately 1000 lbs. Our animals are never fed growth hormones or synthetic feeds. They are treated with antibiotics only when they are sick, not as a routine part of their diet as is common on large feedlot operations.
Our hogs are raised in large, outdoor spaces with lots of room to roam. They are naturally raised and are well cared for by our boys. These hogs have been on our farm since they were piglets with a majority born on site.
Finally, our sheep are Kahtadin Sheep, which are a hair sheep. Kahtadin are an American sheep breed that was bred for the sole purpose of creating high quality, sweet meat.
In addition to our farm-fresh meat, we also sell custom feed for livestock and sell live animals, such as bulls and replacement heifers.
We currently sell our products from our farm located in De Soto, MO.
