Our Story

Started as a side project in 2013, McCain Bros. Excavating has since expanded into a thriving full-time excavating and agricultural drainage installation business under the discerning eye of owner Terrence McCain. Having grown up on a cattle and tobacco farm in Kentucky, he learned a thing or two about caring for the land with integrity and a willingness to put in a hard day’s work. These values combined with his learnings from jobs in corporate America and at a larger, business-minded farm, inspired Terrence to build a business that cared as much about people and providing quality service as it did about the bottom line.

What exactly does this mean?

First, we use only the most up-to-date technology and equipment to provide our customers with the highest quality service at a competitive price. For property owners, developers, and general contractors, we make their development plans a reality. For farmers, we increase the productivity and value of their farmland to help create a more consistent and sustainable food supply. Our aim is to build long-term customer relationships by completing projects in a safe, cost-effective, and efficient manner while at the same time providing solid ROI.

Second, we believe in being fair in all our dealings with customers and employees. We’re not willing to compromise our values to get ahead, nor will we cut corners on a project for our financial gain. We pay our employees a fair wage and benefits while opening the door of opportunity to hardworking, competent individuals who may or may not have a background in excavation or farming but have the desire and are willing to do what it takes to make their mark.

Third, we believe that it’s only right to support the community that supports us. Every year, we contribute financially to local nonprofits and offer services to those in need.

Whether we’re working on a building site or a farm, with customers or employees, excavating or installing agricultural drainage, you can be certain we will always have your best interest in mind.

Committed to sustainable solutions.

We provide a range of services that help to improve soil, water, and air quality.

Water Quality Systems

Installed near the end of a storm sewer system on a commercial site development, these systems help filter oil & grease from the water runoff , traps hydrocarbons, and removes suspended solids to improve storm water quality prior to it leaving the site/property.

Storm Water Retention & Detention Systems

These surface and subsurface systems help mitigate flooding in urban areas by slowing the rapid water runoff that occurs on non-porous surfaces (asphalt, concrete, buildings) during rain events.

Carbon Credits

Drainage tile can help minimize tillage passes along with multiple other effects, creating opportunities to earn carbon credits.

Overall Soil Health Improvements

Ag drainage creates optimal soil moisture and aeration which helps improve soil health year after year.

Employment Opportunities

We are an equal opportunity employer and provide benefits including health insurance and matching 401(k) to all full-time team members. We’re continually looking to add motivated, determined, and ethical people to our growing team.
