A Proud History of Poultry Production

Our Company History

Mar-Jac Poultry was founded by brothers Marvin and Jack McKibbon in 1954.

Mar-Jac started as a small processing plant built to serve a cooperative of growers located in Northeast Georgia. Marvin and Jack McKibbon built the processing plant in 1954 to save local growers time and money from transporting live chickens to distant areas to sell for processing. Growers were traveling to cities as far away as Detroit and Chicago to take their birds to market.
