Where it all started

With over 125 years of family history at the heart and soul of their business, KOW founders Jon Urbana and Craig Zimmerman are 6th generation farmers with a mission of passing on their values and pride in raising, sourcing, and delivering the most sought after steaks to your family—from ranch to table. 

Over 125 Years of Ranching

the 70's

Back in the '70s, our family was the first to ship quality breeding stock via fully customized Boeing 747 aircraft to safely handle and deliver the animals—and the first to bring Wagyu to the United States.

We’ve collectively been a part of all aspects of beef production—from livestock, refrigerated transport, dairy production, meatpacking and processing, and restaurant ownership.
