About Sanderson Farms, Inc.

Sanderson Farms is the 3rd largest poultry producer in the United States. We have built more poultry complexes than any other company since 1997. We employ over 18,000 people operating in five states: TX, GA, LA, NC and MS.

From the beginning, Sanderson Farms has been an honest, down-to-earth leader in the chicken business – one that emphasized family values long before it was a hot trend to do so. The company actually began in 1947 as a farm supply business, which sold seed, feed, fertilizer, and other farm supplies. In 1951, D.R. Sanderson, Sr., D.R. Sanderson, Jr., and Joe Frank Sanderson organized a partnership under the name of "Sanderson Brothers." During the next few years, poultry production was added to the business. Then, in 1955, Sanderson Farms was incorporated, and the company, which started as a feed and seed store, began the rise to becoming the top-quality chicken producer we are today.

It takes a lot of people to bring our products to our customers’ tables. From law and science to accounting and computer programming, Sanderson Farms employs people from a wide range of backgrounds and skill sets.

Our employees are awarded with a comprehensive benefits package, competitive compensation and the ability to do something that’s meaningful and challenging.

If you want to join a company where opportunity, performance and excellence share a long and cherished tradition, Sanderson Farms wants to hear from you!
