Smotherman Farms is involved in several other aspects of agriculture and environmental programs. 

I would have to admit the when we purchased these farms in 2002 I had virtually no idea what “agriculture” really was, and was quite sure that “it”  lived in Nebraska or Indiana .  Our family was living in Phoenix, Arizona.  I had a career in Information Management, and my wife was working as a Registered Nurse.  On an extended vacation, I spent a few weeks helping a good friend of ours, Mike Neal, on his farms here in Texas.  After that experience, I thought that turkey farming might be something that I, as well as my family, would really enjoy doing.  Of course, Mike immediately told me, “If you want to get in the turkey business…I can get you in the turkey business!”, and here we are many years later.  Both my wife and I regularly tell each other, and any one else within earshot that this was the best decision that we have ever made.  We really enjoy every single day. 

We believe it is also important for us as poultry operations to present a professional image.  Clean and neat production areas and well kept pastures of green grasses with grazing herds goes along way in making our farms assets to our communities.

 Some of the programs and policies that we incorporate as part of our effort:

Nutrient Management
Community Involvement
Rotational Grazing
