The History of Triple P Ranch

In 1994, Troy Peaster was living in the San Joaquin Valley of California, running a trucking business and almond orchard, and looking for a change. He heard a bit of information that caught his interest Tyson Foods was planning to build a poultry complex near Sedalia, Mo. After talking it over with his son Jake, they decided it was worth a trip in that direction to check things out.

For five days, they explored the options of this opportunity, meeting with Tyson representatives, and also a realtor. It didn't take them long to fall in love with the hills and trees of beautiful Missouri! Before heading back to California, decisions were made, and money was put down toward the piece of land that was destined to become Triple P Ranch.

By the summer of 1995, the California business had been sold, and Troy and Jake with their families, as well as Troy's brother Jim and his family, were loaded up and headed for central Missouri. They brought with them an old bulldozer and did their own dirt work, starting the initial operation of twelve broiler houses, four each for Troy, Jake, and Jim. In 1998, Jim's son Randy bought into the partnership, and eight more houses were built.

Just as Tyson was planning an expansion, two of the area's poultry suppliers moved out, providing another opportunity for the Peasters. They became a distributor of poultry equipment.

Today, Triple P Ranch and Equipment has expanded to twenty chicken houses, twelve of which still grow broilers, and eight that have been completely retrofitted into breeder barns. They are also dealers for multiple different brands of poultry and hog equipment, as well as a construction business specializing in poultry houses.
