OUR ROOTS

As a 3rd and 4th generation farm, we strive to continue the legacy of our family, rooted in hard work, commitment to our goals, and the deep appreciation for our people.

1924

THE BEGINNING

Henry and 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 out on the range.

KREHER LINE

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.

1930's

1940's

HATCHERY

In 1946, Henry, Sr. built a state of the art hatchery building onto his garage. This building housed the new Robbins Incubator and another incubator.

COURAGE

We purchased land for the existing Clarence farm and began focusing on pullet production.

 

The 2nd generation, Henry Jr. & Don Sr.,  join the family business.

Henry Sr. passed away in 1959, the same year as the worst-ever year in the egg industry.

Courage, conviction, and the strength of a family working together pulled them through.

1950's

1960's

COMMERCIAL EGGS

We expanded our commercial hen housing on the Clarence farm and started commercial egg production.

At this time, we were one of 8 commercial poultry farms in Erie County.

Eggs were sold to retail and wholesale customers out of the family house. The office was also in the house.

1980's

SUSTAINABILITY

We expanded the cooler to hold our eggs.

 

Additionally, we began our composting and fertilizer business, serving customers throughout the region. We take our chicken manure, compost it, and eventually turn it into pelleted fertilizer. 

Our feed mill system was updated with a new, more accurate milling system.

MAKING OUR MARK

We were proudly selected as the upstate New York producer for Eggland's Best eggs.

Don Sr. and Henry Jr. retired from the business in 1992.

In 1999, we were awarded the contract to supply all the eggs to Tops Markets in New York State and PA. 

We were the first farm in Erie County to implement a Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) plan for  our manure.

1990's

2000's

CROP FARMING

We began organic crop production and became one of the largest organic crop farms in the state.

 

Our 4th generation began to join the family business.

In 2007, we acquired Wayne County Eggs. Two years later, in 2009, we began construction on Kreher Sunrise Farms for organic egg production.

CONTINUED GROWTH

We are growing!  We continue to produce quality farm fresh eggs, partner with producers and processors on a wide variety of  crop and grain farming, and produce our compost and fertilizer.

With both the 3rd and 4th generation and a hard working team of employees, we continue to work together for our customers and our community. 

TODAY

EXPANSION

We increased production through contract farming and expanded our packing facility. The retail business moved out of the family house and into the market building.

 

Our 3rd generation began to join the family business.

We constructed our own feed mill. To remain efficient, we needed to grow our own feed for our hens. 

1970's

Our People

Whether working in poultry care, egg processing, crop and field operations, distribution, compost and fertilizer, feed mill, maintenance, or our office, our people are truly our most valued resource.

 

It is their dedication and respect for one another that allows us to continue to confidently grow as a business.​

We believe strongly in creating an environment in which people are able to continue to learn and to grow professionally.
