James Minder Carlson

Born and raised in Bremerton, Jim has been in the beef industry virtually his whole life. He learned to raise and feed cattle in his pre-teens and what it takes to place the perfect cut of beef on the plate at a very early age. Teen years included cleaning up the meat market, hauling cattle and checking groceries. He graduated from West Bremerton High in 1975, and after 2 years at Olympic College and a brief stint of selling real estate, he assumed ownership of Minder Meats in 1983. Jim has a son, Conner.
