Taking Care of the
Chesapeake Bay Watershed

We're committed to protecting and preserving the natural resources of the region

Chesapeake Bay – It’s Where We Live, Work and Play

Our company was founded, has grown, and is thriving amidst the streams and tributaries of the Chesapeake Bay. With our headquarters, many of our operations and the farms that support them located within the Bay watershed, we take enhancing and protecting the region’s abundant natural resources seriously. It’s where we live, work and play.

It’s a long-standing commitment, and one that has resulted in recycling more than 70 million pounds of nitrogen and 46 million pounds of phosphorus from poultry litter, moving approximately 50% of that material out of the Chesapeake Bay watershed.

Because we truly believe in responsible food and agriculture. It’s our history, and our future.
