Life wasn't always this luxurious for Steve and his boys, though. He grew up "dirt poor," per The New York Post. In an interview with the outlet, he reflected on his childhood.

"We lived on potato soup. My dad was a construction worker. What he gave me is priceless: work ethic. But I had not one piece of ground. I started my first business when I was 22, and everything we built was first-generation. We had no venture capital and no private equity. It was all on us. We take on a lot of debt . . . I bought my first ground in '98. So, we’re 26 years and running. A piece at a time . . . I just hustle. That’s how I got it done," he said.

There are a lot of rumors about McBee Farms the family dynasty.

As aforementioned, Steve McBee founded McBee Farms and Cattle Co. in 1998. It covers 40,000 acres and has a couple of thousand head of cattle.

As he further told The New York Post, there are many rumors about his family's farm.

“I had a banker deny me a loan . . . because they had heard through the grapevine that I was tied to Mafia in Kansas City. The rumors and the coffee shop talk is relentless. It blows my mind that people would believe it," Steve said.

He also noted that because of the hearsay, McBee Farm and Cattle is "under continual investigation, continual audits."

“US Marshals have walked in, saying we sprayed the wrong chemical that you can’t spray in the summer. They storm our office and say, ‘We want to see your records right now.’ I should have been like, ‘Get the hell out of my office!’ But we have nothing to hide. We’ve been through every audit . . . It was the craziest s--t. That happens to us daily,” Steve said.
