Headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, Farmland Foods operates independently as a member of the Smithfield family of companies. In the fifty years since our founding, Farmland has grown to approximately 8,000 employees. As a valued part of Smithfield Foods, Farmland helps account for over a third of the total American pork processing capacity annually. How do we do it? It’s simple: here in the heartland, people believe that success comes from hard work, ingenuity, and a true commitment to quality. At Farmland, we’ve held that belief close since 1959.
