Marina and John Backes
Good, clean, wholesome food is Marina’s passion. Before moving to Missouri, Marina owned and operated Nadia Gourmet Caterers, an upscale catering company in Somerville, New Jersey. Nadia Gourmet Caterers was well known for their fresh approach to food. After falling in love with the Ozarks, Marina brought her passion for food to Missouri in 2010 when she and her husband, John, relocated and opened Circle B Ranch in SW Missouri. Their pasture raised pork is handled the natural way, without antibiotics providing consumers with a superior pork product that is fresh in taste, darker in color, higher moisture content and tenderness after cooking. Marina sells her sauces along with her pork and just recently added meatballs to the menu. Selling all over the state and country, Marina and John have found success in marketing their farm and products through many different social media outlets and by having a product that people love to eat. Marina and John are passionate about the food they produce and the welfare of their animals.
