About Us


Oak Meadow Meats is a custom livestock processing facility and retail meat counter located in Harmony, Minnesota. It is our goal to provide consumers with high quality, safe meat products to feed their families. We take great pride in our work, and offer a large viewing window into our processing room where customers can watch us work each day.

Michael Aggen learned the meat cutting trade while employed as a student worker at the University of Minnesota Meat Lab. When his supervisor retired, Michael stepped in as the interim manager of the Meat Lab before transitioning to a role as a meat inspector for the Minnesota Department of Agriculture.

While working as an inspector, Michael and his wife Vanessa recognized the need for custom meat processing in the livestock-dense area of southeastern Minnesota and northeastern Iowa. Construction plans began, and the crew broke ground in the spring/summer of 2010! Oak Meadow Meats opened its doors for custom livestock and game processing in November 2010, and opened the retail meat counter in April of 2011.

The customers we work with on a daily basis make this business a success. We are continuously grateful for the support of the local community and look forward to serving you in years to come.
