The Farm

There’s a certain way of doing things that’s just right. Prairie Pride Farm of Minnesota knows that first hand. The traditions established over 100 years ago on this 6th generation family farm are carried on today by owners Roger and Dawn Hubmer and can be experienced in the quality products that Prairie Pride Farm of Minnesota offers.

Prairie Pride Farm of Minnesota began selling pork and chicken products at the Mankato Farmers Market, Mankato in the late 1990s, believing that people wanted flavorful pork, raised without antibiotics and as humanly as possible. They were right.

See Roger and Dawn, along with their son Paul who operates the farm’s BBQ catering business and serves as pit master, believe in doing things right. You might call it a little old-fashioned. No antibiotics, no hormones, no animal bi-products. But the results speak volumes.

Today Prairie Pride Farm of Minnesota has grown and evolved into a nationally renowned, award-winning producer of consumer pork, chicken and other farm fresh products. Not bad for doing things the old-fashion way!
