Family Farmer Partners
In America, now more than ever, the family farm means something. There are more than 25,000 family farms that raise chickens in the U.S., and George’s works with over 800 of these growers. At George’s, we take pride in our relationship with our independent contract growers.
George’s partners with independent family farms to grow three types of chickens across five states.
How We Raise Our Chickens
As a fully integrated poultry company, George’s supply chain includes everything from pullet and breeder farms to hatcheries and broiler farms.
At George’s, we believe in raising chickens the right way and treating them fairly. We adhere to the Five Freedoms for each and every chicken that comes from our farms.
Freedom from Hunger and Thirst
by ready access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health and vigor
Freedom from Discomfort
by providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area
Freedom from Pain, Injury or Disease
by prevention through rapid diagnosis and treatment
Freedom to Express Normal Behavior
by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal’s own kind
Freedom from Fear and Distress
by ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering
