Our Journey So Far

OUR ROOTS

Kreher 1st Generation Photo

Henry & Wilhelmina married in 1923, began farming on 18 acres in Amherst, NY with a few cows, pigs, and 54 chickens.

Over the years, Henry would build several coops on their farm and most chickens were kept on the range.

GROWING THE KREHER BRAND

We began breeding the Kreher pure line strain of hen. Our focus was on poultry and egg production.

In addition to taking care of all of their animals, Henry & Wilhelmina had 8 children.

OUR MISSION

Sustainability

Sustainability is at the heart of our agricultural legacy.  Beyond raising hens, our farm produces a diverse range of vegetables and grains, contributing to the consumer market. Notably, our commitment extends to a closed-loop system, where poultry manure serves as a highly effective fertilizer for the crops, which in turn are used to produce feed ingredients for our hens, completing a cycle of responsible and sustainable farming.

OUR MISSION

Food Safety & Quality Assurance

We take pride in our robust food safety and quality assurance programs, ensuring the highest standards are met and maintained daily in every aspect of our operations.

Each of our egg packing houses employ the expertise of an on-site USDA grader/inspector.  The USDA grader provides additional oversight of our processing and sanitation processes while also inspecting our eggs for interior and exterior quality, providing an added layer of confidence.

We have maintained Safe Quality Food (SQF) certification at both packing facilities since 2009.  The SQF program is a leading global food safety and quality certification management system.

Our goal is clear: to deliver the finest, freshest eggs to the market, while striving for excellence throughout our entire production process.
