Does anyone know anything about independent contracting with Perdue?

    I found out recently that Perdue will contract farmers to grow their poultry on their farms. Does anyone here do this, or does anyone know anything about it?

    Lots of farmers are doing it. Contact Perdue and ask them what the program is like. I suspect they want large volume, like maybe a full truck load at a time, and a very reliable steady delivery. However, go right to the source and ask Perdue what they are looking for.

    Quote:Yes, I had emailed them and called the number already for our area. Haven't heard anything yet! Just wondering if anyone else has done it and what their experience has been. They apparently will build the house and supply everything for you, (even the chickens and the feed) you just go through their training and do the work yourself on your property.

    Thanks for the reply!
