A lot of people depend on House of Raeford Farms. Consumers, family poultry farmers, employees and their families, retailers, restaurants, associates, community members, people in need. We take our responsibility to all of them very seriously.

Our Growers

Because House of Raeford is a family-owned company that began as a family farm, we hold our local family farm growers in high esteem. They’re the backbone of our company, the best in the business, working as our partners to produce a high-quality product in an ethical, environmentally responsible and humane manner.

In North Carolina, Louisiana, South Carolina and Georgia, 452 family farms are raising chickens exclusively for House of Raeford. They put the land they love and the specialized knowledge they possess to work for us, and our customers, every day.

Our Employees

House of Raeford Farms was started as a public-private partnership among three growers and the town of Rose Hill as a way to create jobs for the community. Clearly, that was a goal well met, and the company has grown considerably since then and continues to provide employment that helps stoke our local economies.

At the moment, our employee roster stands at around 5,500 people across multiple towns in four Southeastern states. It’s a large group, but each individual is as important as the next.
