Adcock typically produces more than half a million-broiler chickens each year, turning over puts out seven flocks of 83,000 chickens per flock. Each flock takes between 37 and 40 days to produce.
In a news release from Pilgrim, Adcock said every day is different. "You have to make sure the chickens are as com-fortable as possible,” said Adcock. "I don't give up on any-thing. I give it 110 percent, every day. It doesn't matter what I'm doing, I give it my all.”
Adcock is a third generation chicken farmer. His grand-parents constructed their first chicken house 56 years ago. His parents started to raise broilers in 1968 and Adcock bought his first chicken houses 22 yeas ago at the age of 19.
In 2004, the Adcock family was honored as Bartow County’s Farm Family of the Year.
