Company Overview Visit farmlandfoods.com website
Farmland Industries is a company that was founded in 1955 and maintained several different divisions, including farming and construction. In early 2000, the organization merged with Smithfield Foods to become the largest hog producer in America through their subsidiary Murphy-Brown LLC. In 2003, Smithfield split from Farmland Industries and began its own company called Smithfield Foods.
In 1993, Farmland Industries made an attempt at being a public corporation, but failed after only a few months due to a lack of interest for investors. As a result of this failed endeavor, they disbanded their corporate offices and returned to being privately held by Gerald Johnston.
Today, Farmland Industries sells agricultural real estate throughout North Carolina and Virginia. They also have 3 additional business units: Farmland Construction and Development, Adams Manufacturing, and Triton Consultants.
