SUSTAINABILITY AT KREHER'S

BETTER FOR OUR HENS, BETTER FOR OUR CROPS,

BETTER FOR OUR PLANET

OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainability at Kreher's is a holistic commitment that touches upon everything that we do including how we care for our flocks, our communities and one another.  It also encompasses the approaches we use to produce the products we offer, as well as how we aim to conserve our natural resources.

Responsible farming, by its very nature, requires that you do things in the most sustainable manner in order to succeed.  This is something that our family has understood and embraced from the founding of our family farm to present day. 

 

As we celebrate a century of farming, this commitment remains steadfast, driving us to nurture a legacy that goes beyond the fields and into the fabric of our community at large, through maintaining a healthy, sustainable environmental footprint.

CARING FOR OUR HENS

Our dedicated Poultry Care team attend to our flocks with the utmost diligence every day.  They closely monitor the health and well-being of our hens, the quality and availability of their feed & water, lighting conditions and air quality. 

Healthy, well cared for hens produce high quality eggs!

 

Biosecurity measures are rigorously implemented to protect the health of our flock, ensuring they thrive in a safe and secure environment.
