We are honored to be affiliated with over 450 farm families across North Carolina, South Carolina, Mississippi, Alabama, and Iowa. These families have joined with us to produce over 1.3 billion pounds of pork and turkey annually by contributing the land they love, the buildings they own, and their daily animal management expertise.
Prestage Farms delivers genetically superior animals to our grower families along with feed that has been formulated for the animals’ specific needs. When necessary, veterinary supplies and diagnostic lab evaluations are provided to the growers along with management and environmental support services. Prestage transports the animals to market when the appropriate weight is achieved.
Our growers share the Prestage Farms commitment to producing pork and turkey in a responsible, ethical, and humane manner. These families are the backbone of the Prestage team and operate their farms and equipment in an environmentally responsible manner. They understand that their everyday actions will have a lasting impact on their livelihood, our natural resources, and the future of our world.
