Our story

Welcome to The Blue Grass Bend!

"BGB beef has become a staple in our recipes. Corry raises some quality beef and makes the custom cut ordering so easy; we even drive up from Kansas to get it!"
Spencer AtkinsonGardner, KS
"The best part of doing business at The Bend is the personal care given to each customer, whether they are buying one pepper or a dozen eggs. The perfect blend of wholesome freshness and neighborly charm. "
