Family is at the heart of
Mountaire® (collectively Mountaire Corporation and its two operating affiliates, Mountaire Farms Inc. and Mountaire Farms of Delaware, Inc.) are agricultural food production and processing companies providing work for over 10,000 people at facilities in Arkansas, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina. Now the fourth largest chicken company in the United States, we are still family owned and remain dedicated to giving back to the communities where we do business.
Mountaire was founded in 1914 by Guy Cameron. His son, Ted, joined him in the business, and the family legacy continued when his grandson, Ronnie, joined the company in 1968. Ronnie remains as Chairman of the Board, while his son-in-law, Kevin Garland, has served on the Board since 2008 and served as CEO from 2018 to 2023.
