Eight buildings cover 335 acres. The company says the $100 million complex will house cage-free chickens, an egg processing facility, and a fertilizer operation.
“As the industry and the consumers have asked for cage-free, this is some of the first large cage-free production here so there’s a lot of demand coming from our customers,” Greg Herbruck, CEO of Herbruck’s Poultry Ranch said.
The egg farm will employ nearly 200 people.
