Innovation & Growth


The construction we have going on in Crawfordville is no doubt a huge “growth spurt” within our company and will also lead to more growth in the future. In building a new feed mill, Harrison Poultry is expanding in more ways than one. We will have capacities and the capability to take on growth that our current feed mill would not have allowed for. Making sure we can feed the birds is the first step towards growth. Further down the road, we have plans to expand the company even more with a new hatchery, more farms, and eventually an additional processing plant.


We will be able to expand our customer base and meet higher demands with the growth of our company, as well as grow our HPI family by being able to take on more farmers and create more job opportunities with our future expansion.


As for our new gentle giant of a feed mill that we are currently building (projected to be in commission late fall of 2020), the statistics and capabilities of it far exceed our current 65 year-old mill. Here are a few statistics that show the vast production differences between the current and new mill.

  • Our current broiler feed requirements per week are about 5,503 tons

    • The current mill’s max weekly capacity is about 5,500 tons per week

    • The new mill will produce 14,000 tons of feed per week with the capacity of producing 21,000 tons per week if we add a third pellet line

  • The soybean storage at our current mill is 250 tons. The new mill will have the capacity to hold 5,000 tons.

  • “Other” ingredient storage at our current mill is 450 tons. The new mill will have the capacity to hold 3,515 tons.

  • The truck receiving rate at our current mill is 120 tons/hour. The new mill will be able to receive at 240 tons/hour.

  • Finished feed storage at our current mill is 500 tons. The new mill will have 4,108 tons of finished feed storage.

  • The mixing rate at our current mill is 60 tons/hour. The new mill will be 240 tons/hour.

  • The corn storage at our current mill is 300,000 bushels. The new mill will have capacity to hold 1,000,000 bushels.

  • The rail receiving rate will triple at the new mill from 15,000 bushels/hour to 45,000 bushels/hour.

Why crawfordville?

There was an abundant amount of thought and strategizing that went into choosing Crawfordville for our new feed mill – one of the most exciting things about the location chosen is the amount of opportunity for growth. There is a lot of space to build new houses, and there will be an increase in agricultural jobs created for Taliaferro County. We look forward to being able to expand our HPI family in this area.
