About Mill Creek Meat Company
WELCOME TO MILL CREEK MEAT COMPANY
Mill Creek Meat Company, LLC is the custom meat division of a family-owned farming and ranching business set up in the late 1800s by our great-grandfather. Our grandfather, as well as our father, grew up at the very spot that we now call the headquarters. We are located on Mill Creek in south Ellis County, Texas. Cattle have been raised here continuously since the farm's inception.
A LITTLE HISTORY
In the late 1800s, there was only true horsepower as all fieldwork was done with horses or mules pulling plows, powering the haybine, or working the thrasher. The mule and horse barn housed all the fresh animals until they were needed to replace those working in the fields. In the early 1940s small tractors came into use, taking the place of mules and horses. From the onset, the farming operation provided support for the ranching side as we grew wheat and oats for grazing, and corn to grind for feed.
