MORE THAN 220 EMPLOYEES HONORED FOR OVER 20 YEARS OF SERVICES AT ROSE ACRE FARMS

by Mark Whittington | May 12, 2018
After more than 80 years of providing nutritious, affordable eggs across America, Rose Acre Farms is celebrating the service of more than 220 employees who have worked at the company for over 20 years. Twelve of those honored have been with the family-owned company for more than 40 years.

Many of these long-term employees, including CEO Marcus Rust, started caring for hens when they were children growing up on the Indiana farm where the company started. Through the years, those dedicated individuals have been an invaluable resource to Rose Acre’s purpose-driven mission in supplying protein rich food to our communities across the nation.

From the early beginnings in the late 1930s, Rose Acre Farms has been proud of its integrity and excellence. “Happy employees who stay with you produce good work,” said 63-year veteran employee and family matriarch Lois Rust. “It’s gratifying to see how our family business has flourished. We never could have done it without the care and devotion of the people we’ve grown to love.”

Here is a list of 12 individuals who have served Rose Acre for over four decades. A compilation of all 224 employees with more than 40-years of service can be found on www.goodegg.com.
