Ohio Egg Farmers

Committed to Producing Safe, Wholesome Eggs 365 Days a Year

Ohio’s egg farming families are proud to work year-round to produce nutritious, affordable eggs and egg products for families across the nation. There are numerous steps egg farmers take to ensure your eggs are fresh and of the highest quality. Watch below to see how eggs travel from an Ohio egg farm to your table!


It all Starts with Ensuring Excellent Hen Care

Thomas makes sure that hens have 24/7 access to fresh food and water and are monitored for their health. On Ohio egg farms, animal care teams are specially trained to look for signs of animal well-being because they know that high-quality eggs start with healthy hens.

Maintaining a Clean, Safe Environment is a Top Priority

Barn maintenance workers, like Luis, ensure that barns are kept clean and are well-ventilated so that hens have fresh air and a clean, safe environment to live within.

After Eggs are Collected, they Move to Processing

Zach receives the eggs as they’re brought from hen houses on conveyor belts. In processing, eggs are thoroughly washed and then sorted based on their weight.

Eggs are Graded for Quality

Egg graders, like Elvira, use a process called “candling” to check the internal and external quality of eggs. Some farms have egg graders from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) on-staff, which will determine if eggs are “USDA certified”. This step assures that eggs are of the highest quality before being packed into cartons.

Eggs are Transported from the Farm to the Grocery Store

After eggs have been packed into cartons and then into boxes, they are loaded onto refrigerated trucks. Then, truck drivers, like Rick, transport the eggs safely from the farm to grocery stores and restaurants.

Grocery Store Shelves are Stocked with Eggs for Consumers to Purchase

At grocery stores, sales associates, like Katey, display the eggs in refrigerators where customers can consider which eggs to purchase. On average, it only takes 48-72 hours for an egg to reach the grocery store after it has been laid in the hen house!

Consumers Can Enjoy High-Quality Eggs
