Jeremy Geatches
Vice President / Owner

Country Meats was founded in 1978 and the next year he was born on the 15 acre farm. Neighbors tell stories how his fathers pigs would leave the farm and end up in the neighborhood eating their landscaping and he would tag along with his diaper full and half off. The family has always had boats and he has always loved going fishing with Arron, his dad and mom but never Paul - he is bad luck - boats always break when he is on them. Technology and its implementation are his biggest asset to the company. He loves his wife and kids and look forward to them and his brothers kids working in the family business one day. He loves to meet and talk to folks at all of the conferences.
