The Prestage Family

For over 35 years, the Prestage name has been synonymous with four qualities: family, integrity, quality, and innovation.

Since the company’s founding in 1983 by Bill and Marsha Prestage, our focus has been on supplying high-quality turkey and pork while building a sustainable family-oriented business rooted in integrity and innovation. Still family-owned and operated with three generations working throughout the company today, we remain committed to these foundational principles that have guided us since the early days.
