About Circle M Ranch Circle M Ranch was founded by Otto I Milbrand, in the early 1970's as a small local slaughterhouse/packing plant. Lindy Hunt began working for Circle M Ranch at the age of fourteen, doing chores for Mr. Milbrand. As the Ranch grew up so did Mr. Hunt who worked his way from chore-boy to Owner/operator. Under Mr. Hunt's guidance the business has grown to a regional full line federally inspected processing plant specializing in high quality, value added and smoked meats. Circle M Ranch products are all natural hardwood smoked using only the finest USDA inspected cuts that insures a great tasting, moist and tender product.Our products have their own unique and distinct flavor due to the use of proprietary recipes from the seasonings we blend ourselves. We have won numerous smoked meat awards including 1999 Best of Show for our boneless ham at the Michigan Cured Meat Championships.
