Environmental Awareness


Our Air Chill System uses cold air not water to chill our chickens, so we are able to save millions of gallons of water each yearAnd since water is not weeping from the chicken, we will now be able to use recyclable and reusable shipping containers. As part of our commitment to environmental stewardship, we are constantly looking for new ways to protect our local environment and eliminate land fill. We recycle over 20 tons of corrugated cardboard each month. As we move forward, we will be eliminating our waxed cartons and moving toward shipping some of our products in reusable containers. 

Our wastewater treatment plant is a state-of-the-art facility. Having an onsite treatment plant allows us to use recycled water to wash our live haul trailers, transportation modules and crates. The wastewater effluent is discharged into a stream that has abundant fish, muskrat, mink, frog, and bird activity. 

Protecting our environment... It's the right thing to do.
