Amie Brunkow, Owner

Amie is the proud mom of five daughters. 
She married Jarrod in 2009 who services in the U.S. Air Force as a
civil engineer.  Together they run Brown Kow Farms in Paxico, KS.  When
they first obtained cattle and goats Amie began inquiring into lockers
to use when the time came.  Dissatisfied with the customer service of
surrounding lockers Amie took the butcher knife in her own hands.   With
her educational background in biochemistry she began researching all
should could about meat sciences.  Her interest quickly become a full
fledge passion after processing her first goat!  Three years later she
decided to purchase long-time legacy business Alta Vista Meat Locker
retaining the staff of experienced butchers who are the best in the

maintenance go to man. History is his hobby and Alta Vista has a lot of
history. He also loves the Barnyard Cafe! Don't we all?

since his senior year in high school.  So when in doubt, Scott is the
man to ask!  Scott married to his wonderful wife, Angel,11 years ago and

the outdoors.

Cassie and Kyle live in Alta Vista with
their three beautiful children. Cassie loves gardening in her free time
and attending any and all of her children's activities. Cassie does a
meticulous job when it comes to wrapping all your custom cuts! Even with
the best butcher paper and film wrap the job still requires someone who
cares about the packaging as much as you do! Be sure to thank her next
time you are in.

Kelcey, Trimmer

Kelcey and her husband, Beau, live
outside Alta Vista. Kelcey is original from Maine. Kelcey primarily
trims meat, but there are lot of small jobs that make a big difference
she also handles. Ever wonder how the slaughter team makes sure the
right cow gets tagged with the right farmer? Kelcey! When you drop off
an animal Kelcey will be there to help you and make sure you fill out
the drop off forms correctly. Then she preps the tags for the slaughter
team to place on the carcass with tag information.

Brenda J, The Cleaner

Brenda is the proud mom of six bambinos.
Brenda and her husband, Matt, live outside Alta Vista and enjoy spending
time with their family. Every day the state checks our sanitation.
You can ask any of our state inspectors and they will tell you without
hesitation we have the BEST CLEANER in the business!!! Every month we
are required to test for bacteria like e.coli and listeria. We test
negative because the diligent passion Brenda puts into make our facility

George Gonzalez, Butcher in Training

George is originally from Alamo, TX. He
currently is training to be a butcher. Before working at AV Meat Co
George was a pen rider and ranch hand. His love for animals is seen in
his interaction with them on slaughter day. Even though we only see the
animals alive for a short time period doesn't mean we aren't devoted to
treating them with respect. This is another reason we are set apart
from other lockers..
