Hey there! We are Point Pleasant Meats, and it is so great to meet you! We are multi-generational family farm in the heart of the Bluegrass State. We raise soybeans, tobacco, cattle and sheep. We come from a long line of American Farmers and tradesmen, starting with John Evans around 1660. We are proud to carry on the family tradition of caring for the land, working hard and responsibly, and now, provide you the best quality meat to feed your family. We are passionate about improving the quality of our land and the animals that live there. We love to share our story and teach about the wide diversity of crops and livestock in agriculture.
The Evans Family
We are the Evans family! Johnny and Dianne Evans, together along with kids, Sara, John, and Mary, make up Point Pleasant Meats! Johnny and Dianne have been farming the family land since 1976, land that Johnny helped his father and great uncle and grandfather farm before him. We love this land, and work hard each day to take care of it for the generations that come after us.
Sara's day job as manager for the Paris Stockyards gives great value and insight to the management of our herd, cattle marketing decisions, and strategies. She is one of the friendly faces you see at the farmers market.
John is a Professor of Ag Engineering at Purdue University. He always is working to make our operation more cost effective and efficient and keeping equipment and machinery in good shape. His ideas and hard work make us a better farm. His spouse Rachel helps out with the website and agronomic decisions for the farm.
Mary is the voice behind our social media and marketing. She keeps the back end running as well as shares the latest updates from the farm, recipes, and more. You'll find her and her two girls, Stella and Sophie at the farmers market.
Johnny runs all aspects of the day to day operation, from planting and harvesting, spraying, feeding and checking cattle and keeping everything running smoothly. He can fix just about anything and knows all the best places to find a good deal on tractor parts.
Dianne manages all aspects of the sheep operation and keeps the lambs and ewes healthy and well cared for. She has a passion for regenerative agriculture and is always researching new methods to make our livestock operation more sustainable. She also is the creator of all the delicious candies, cookies, and treats we have for sale at the farmers market.
