The story of Harvest Meats is one of history, heritage, and passion. Our long-standing family tradition has evolved over the past century. Our great grandfather, Alexander Propp, and his family started a sausage business in Rhein, Saskatchewan in 1928. Since then, with over four generations of family management and growth, we’ve expanded into food retailing, wholesaling, and even the restaurant sector.
Currently, Harvest Meats operates in Yorkton, Saskatchewan, under the management of Kenn Propp. He and the Propp family have kept 50 of the original recipes for our products to this day. Recognizing changes in consumer tastes, we have also added about 150 new recipes to expand the selection of delicious products.
Today, our team has grown to over 250 people at a facility with over 165,000 square feet. True to our heritage, we continue to produce delicious products, using state-of-the-art equipment within a safety-first team culture.
We still make our products the traditional way. We put quality ingredients in our products and only use select cuts of pork and beef. We do not use meat fillers or by-products. All of our smoked products are naturally smoked using real hardwood chips, not artificial chemical dips or sprays. Most of our products are gluten free, and MSG is not added.
With four generations of family management, Harvest Meats holds our family values strong within the organization. Everyone is a part of our extended family and we remain true to our roots, providing a small-town community-minded experience. Today, there are hundreds of people in the Harvest Meats family who provide quality products for customers nationwide, so it’s no surprise that every member of our family is very important to us!
