Join Farmers Hen House and the Iowa Organic Association for an afternoon workshop in Kalona, Iowa. Learn about the history of Farmers Hen House, best practices for organic egg production, how their packing facility works. We will also visit a poultry farm that supplies eggs to the family business.
Farmers Hen House began in 1997 with an Amish man's idea that producing organic eggs could be a way to keep small farms in the Kalona, Iowa area sustainable. The business began with just a few farms, but soon began to grow. Today, Farmers Hen House operates an egg grading and distribution facility in Kalona, Iowa. It's where eggs from our network of family farms are cleaned, graded and packaged. Our network includes mostly local farms, as well as farms in Bloomfield, Iowa and northern Missouri. Farmers Hen House’s facility is 100% solar powered.
This event is made possible by a generous grant from the USDA's Risk Management Agency.
Space is limited! Please RSVP.
