-   OUR STORY  -


Blake and Emily McDonald, owners of 2M Beef, welcome you to join them on their journey to provide families with safe, locally-raised, quality beef. 


Growing up in Sullivan, MO, Blake and Emily are 4th and 2nd generation beef producers.  They were both involved in 4-H, served as officers at the local and area levels of FFA, and showed cattle.


After high school, Blake was involved in both Meat and Livestock Judging teams at the University of Missouri, where he majored in Animal Sciences with an Ag Economics minor, and later obtained a MS in Ruminant Nutrition. Emily took a different path and earned her Doctorate of Pharmacy degree at St. Louis College of Pharmacy. 

After college, Blake managed an Angus and SimAngus cowherd for Dr. Gary and Norma Allee in Boone County, MO and remains involved in his family's cattle operation alongside his dad and brother. Emily works as a Clinical Counseling Pharmacist. Blake and Emily's small business has stemmed from their hard-work, knowledge, and passion for beef. Together, they will provide quality beef from their pastures to your tables. 

Whether you are considering buying beef from them or have already made your purchase, they appreciate you supporting their small business. It is their priority that you are satisfied with your beef, so email them for any questions or concerns that you may have and they will get back to you as soon as possible.
