Jeremy Geatches
CEO / Owner

Country Meats was founded in 1978 and the next year he was born on the 15-acre farm. Neighbors tell stories how his father’s 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 his dad and wife. He started in the cooler with a squeegee, stuffed meat, took out the trash, learned the forklift, shipped product, fixed broken machinery and wrote pay checks. In 2003 most everything we did was accounted for on paper. He worked his way into the office and transferred everything to digital which vastly improved customer service and sales. Technology and its implementation are his biggest asset to the company. He loves his wife of 13 years and 2 beautiful children. Spending time with them is the best. In his free time, he enjoys playing basketball and Xbox.
