About Us

pasture raised beef
Family Owned and operated


T-N-T Market’s story begins over 100 years ago in Anderson, Tx, where the Grupa family settled and started a family. They farmed thousands of acres on which they transported their herds of cattle.

Ben Grupa, born in 1925, grew up on the family farm in Anderson; a real cowboy driving cattle to market on horseback.
​After serving in the US Navy, Ben returned home and worked all day, seven days a week working and tending cattle. Eventually sharing his knowledge with his bright-eyed grandson, owner and founder of T-N-T, Travis Pavlock. A little boy living his best life on the knee of his Grandpa, learning the family business.
“I remember him as a cowboy – he always wore blue and white striped overalls, thin long-sleeved shirt, straw cowboy hat and not to mention the dip in his cheek. I can still picture riding on his lap on his 444 International Tractor pulling a New Holland square baler.”
Travis worked with his grandfather every weekend from age 5 to 18 - processing beef and pork and taking cows to auction. “I thought this was what all kids were doing on a Friday night, I was so excited to have that time with him.”

Ben passed away in May of 2007, leaving behind a legacy that Travis and his family are compelled to continue.

“This is in my blood. I am driven by the memory of my Grandpa to provide all-natural, high quality meat you can't beat."

Local, Natural and Proud.

At T-N-T Market, we take pride in serving the best meats to the local community. Our animals are raised in open, stress-free pastures right here in Texas.

Pasture Raised

Our cattle are raised on native pastures throughout the year. In winter, we supplement with winter rye, bahia, and alfalfa. We have Hereford/Angus and Brangus that are all started on grass, then either finished on grass or on a cottonseed meal blend - no corn.

Support Local

Local Resources

By sourcing feed and other essentials locally, we not only support neighboring businesses but also contribute to the environmental well-being of our region. This ensures that our cattle thrive on a diet reflective of the local ecosystem, resulting in quality meats that resonate with the flavors of our community.
