That familiar Texas greeting covers everyone from those who live next door to the stranger we just walked past on the street. That’s the beauty 0f Texas and it’s a big part of who we are.
We’re Alec and Kristie Ramirez, owners of Royalty Meat Company.
Our purpose for opening a farm-to-table meat company is simple: We want to put quality meat on your plate and preserve a Texas icon: agriculture.
We partner with family-owned and operated farms and ranches throughout the state dedicated to raising the best animals so you can enjoy the freshness found only in farm-to-table foods.
We don’t think you’ll find anything like it in the grocery store. That’s because Texas farmers and ranchers know the value of a hard day’s work and the reward of producing a product you will proudly put your name on.
Royalty Meat Company will only source Texas products to support our neighbors’ farm and ranch livelihoods because we value the agricultural lifestyle of family, faith, and friends. Our roots are planted deep in agriculture, and we want to ensure this industry continues for generations to come.

ALEC AND KRISTIE RAMIREZ, OWNERS
Alec and Kristie met in 2008 when Alec was competing at a Texas Tech University collegiate rodeo. Shortly after, they were making plans to one day open an agriculture-related business together. After they married, the couple moved to the Houston area in 2014 and soon recognized they had a unique opportunity to share with folks where their food really comes from (and it’s not just the grocery store.)
Alec grew up in Lamesa, Texas, a rural, West Texas farm community where he worked alongside his parents and grandparents at the family ranch. They raised commercial Charolais cattle and grew fruits and vegetables, providing farm-to-table food for their community.
Collegiate rodeo took Alec north for a stint at West Texas A&M University in Canyon, Texas. He later transferred to Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in agriculture and applied economics.
Alec manages the daily operations of Royalty Meat Company. He traded a career in corporate agribusiness with Archer Daniels Midland to focus on ensuring you get the highest quality Texas-raised meat and related products.
Kristie is a financial advisor for Edward Jones with an office in Friendswood. On the weekend, you will find her working at the retail counter at Royalty Meat Company.
Growing up in Elgin, Texas, Kristie competed on horseback in play-day events and worked the cattle chutes at her family’s roping arena. Kristie is also a Red Raider, earning her master’s in business and undergraduate degrees from Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas.
Today, she and Alec continue to help with her family’s show cattle operations. Kristie also participates in the Texas Cattlewomen’s Association and the local Gulf Coast Cattlewomen Chapter. For the last several years, she has traveled with the Texas Cattlewomen’s Association on their annual “Women in Ranching” tours to network with and learn from other Texas beef producers.
Kristie and Alec enjoying spending their time off with their pup, Oliver, and traveling to see friends and family throughout the state.
They are active in beef, pork, and poultry associations to stay current on the meat industry. Through the various courses and certificates they have earned, Kristie and Alec have developed a knowledge of the meat industry that goes beyond the difference between a ribeye and a filet.
