Our Company

Our Heritage

In the 1920s, C.L. George and his sons, Luther and Gene, began hauling live birds from Arkansas to larger markets in the Midwest. Many years later, under the leadership of Gene, George’s would grow from a small, local business, to a major, fully integrated poultry operation. When Gene’s son Gary took over in the 1980s he positioned the company for growth with more facility expansions and acquisitions. As of 2013, Gary’s sons, Carl and Charles, lead the fourth generation of George’s, Inc. into success and growth, while maintaining the family values their predecessors instilled in the company. Today, George’s is among the top ten largest vertically integrated chicken producers in America.

Our History

When our founder, C. L. George, began hauling live birds to Kansas City, St. Louis and Chicago, he laid the foundation for the future of George’s, Inc.

Slide 1


C. L. George opened a general store in Brush Creek, Arkansas. As business grew, he began hauling live birds to larger markets in the Midwest. C. L. moved his operation to Springdale, Arkansas, and formed Farmer’s Produce Company. A farmer at heart, C. L. maintained close relationships with growers, a legacy that lives on.

Slide 2


George’s sons Gene and Luther came on board, and the business became C. L. George and Sons. After completing a hatchery and office at the Robinson Avenue complex in the early 1960s, the operation continued to grow with expansion of the existing feed mill, a truck shop, and the formation of a propane company. During this period of growth the company became George’s Feed and Supply.

Slide 3


Continuing the family tradition, Gene George took over as President, and George’s Feed and Supply became George’s, Inc. in 1973. The ‘80s were also a time of major growth for the company, as Gene’s son Gary was named President/COO.

Slide 4


Growth continued with expansions of existing operations and a new mill in Missouri. Gary George was named CEO, and under his leadership, the company became the 12th largest chicken producer in the U.S. in 2012.

Slide 5


In 2013, George’s, Inc. named Gary’s sons, Carl and Charles George, as Co-CEO/Presidents to lead innovation and future growth. The company continues to thrive, and in 2018, George’s, Inc. acquired Ozark Mountain Poultry, Inc. to offer consumers affordable No Antibiotics Ever and non-GMO poultry products.
