Today is World Egg Day and a local egg producer is shedding some light on how they do business.
Farmers Hen House is a specialty egg producer in Washington County and is the only company in Iowa that exclusively raises cage free eggs.

Farmers Hen House General Manager Ryan Miller says that he works with 30-35 farms within 10 miles of Kalona, each producing around 140,000 dozen eggs a year. He says in all there are about 250,000 chickens in the Kalona area.

Farmers Hen House eggs can be found at stores in over 25 states and can be found locally at the Washington HyVee and JW’s in Kalona.
