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.
Bob Johnson is the son of House of Raeford Farms’ founder Marvin Johnson and currently serves as President & CEO of the company. Under his leadership, House of Raeford has consistently been one of the 10 largest chicken producers nationally. The organization also ranks as one of the leading revenue-producing companies in North Carolina.
Don has bottom-line management responsibility for all aspects of the Cooked Products Group. This includes a mini-corndog plant in Hemingway, SC as well as cook plants in Mocksville, NC and Forest Park, GA.
Ken, a 30+ year veteran of the poultry industry, is the Chief Financial Officer. In this position, he directs the activities of the accounting, treasury, credit, strategic planning, benchmarking, risk management, and corporate administration functions for the company.
Michael Teachey has been with House of Raeford since 2003 and currently serves the company as General Manager of the Foods Division. From a sales and marketing perspective, he was instrumental in the transition as the company exited the turkey business in 2013 and moved to a complete focus on ready-to-cook and further processed chicken products.
Chan Windham is a 20-year veteran of House of Raeford Farms beginning as an Assistant Sales Manager at the W. Columbia, SC complex in 1995. He later moved to the Greenville, SC complex as Sales Manager and was named Director of Commodity Sales for the company in 2003.
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.
Proof that we think House of Raeford Farms is a good place to work: our owners work here.
