Lettie McKinney

Fourth generation Southwest Kansas rancher and farmer, Lettie McKinney, is walking an entrepreneurial path like the generations before her. McKinney left southwest Kansas after high school and pursued a degree in animal science from Oklahoma state university. After completion, she then continued her education at Texas Christian University and obtained a degree in Ranch Management. Upon graduation, she returned to the high plains only a little farther south in the Texas panhandle. Mckinney worked for feedyards both in Texas and in Kansas, before home called her name.

McKinney moved home in 2019 and never looked back. She carved a unique niche on their operation by creating MC- Meat Co a direct-to-consumer retail meat business that connects with families and people all over. Educating and inspiring people to ask questions and trust where their food comes from.

In addition to MC- Meat Co, Mckinney owns and operates a wedding venue/ event venue, created by utilizing the resources on the ranch. With an old “Roundtop” turned into a rustic ranch experience. Along with the Roundtop, Mckinney hosts individuals and families on the ranch with a unique AIR BNB experience converted from an old Grain bin.

McKinney is passionate about keeping future generations on the farm and ranch, adding value with resources you already have, and gives a fresh and vibrant outlook on the ag industry as a whole and how much opportunity is available. Lettie is an inspiration for entrepreneurs and new faces of agriculture that are emerging, even if it looks different than what it did before.
