Our overriding commitment at House of Raeford Farms is to do what’s right, to be a good corporate citizen, to elevate our industry—and even to strive to set the standard for others.

Food Safety & Nutrition

Americans eat about 160 million servings of chicken every single day, and 99.999 percent of those servings are consumed safely. That’s great, but House of Raeford wants to do even more. We want every one of our chicken products to be not only safe, but also wholesome, nutritious and, of course, delicious. We take a lot of steps to make that happen.
