Animal Welfare

"The Health and Welfare of Laying Hens is Paramount"

Since our beginnings as a family chicken farm in the early 1930s, Rose Acre Farms has made the health of the laying hens a top priority. We put considerable resources toward advancing scientific understanding of animal husbandry best practices, and we use this knowledge to increase the health and quality of life of laying hens.  

Animal welfare is central to our business, but it is also a foundational value of our company. We believe that good stewardship of resources includes humane and caring treatment of the animals in our care, so we go above and beyond requirements and standards to ensure that the chickens are well cared for as an integral component of our egg production operations. Caring for hens is the backbone of Rose Acre Farms’ company culture.
