A Letter From Our Founder

Thank you for visiting the Center Fresh Group website. As someone who's been in the business of egg farming since I was a teenager, I've seen extraordinary changes occur.

One thing that hasn't changed over those decades – our commitment to doing what's right. Center Fresh was founded on the core values, guiding principles and dedication of eight farm families with a rich history in egg farming in Iowa – family values we still hold dear today.

That commitment means that at Center Fresh Group we will:

  • Produce safe, high-quality, wholesome eggs and egg products;
  • Care for and house our flocks to maintain their health and well-being at all times;
  • Manage our farms responsibly to protect the land, air and water around us;
  • Provide jobs and investment in the places where we operate;
  • Work with our customers with honesty and integrity;
  • Contribute to the communities where we live, work and play; and
  • Be held accountable for our farms, our employees and our actions.

Although Center Fresh Group itself was formed less than 20 years ago, the combined egg farming history of our families spans generations. Our heritage shaped how we evolved, and it is reflected in the choices we make on our farms each day.

I hope you will spend time on our site learning more about what we do, about our Iowa farms and about the food we produce.

Thank you,

Jim Dean
