Fremont Farms of Iowa, LLP was established in 1998 by a group of family farms with long legacies in egg production. Fremont Farms has grown to become one of the nation’s leading producers of high-quality liquid egg products. Our family-owned egg farms include state-of-the-art cage-free and conventional pullet and layer barns, a dedicated feed mill, and an inline egg breaking facility.
In recent years, we have invested heavily in building new cage-free facilities for our pullets and laying hens. We continue to transition our operations toward cage-free liquid egg production to meet growing consumer demand. Our transitioning and modernized farm is one of the most efficient single-site liquid egg production facilities in the country, and we make every effort to ensure that we operate sustainably.
At Fremont Farms, we are dedicated to providing the very best care for our hens through every step of their lives. We buy grain from local Iowa farmers to produce our own feed, we tend to our chicks as they become pullets, we carefully care for our hens when producing eggs, we inspect, break, and process each and every egg onsite, and we supply soil conditioner to farmers for their fields.

A Use for Everything
Fremont Farms is committed to caring for the land and animals that make it possible for us to make a living. Everything on our farms has a purpose, and we make sure that nothing goes to waste. Here is how we use some of the byproducts from our operations:
Our eggshells are dried and finely ground to add a calcium source to the pullet and layer feed we produce at our own on-site feed mill.
When eggs are separated, the protein-rich egg membrane lining the shell is extracted and used in various health applications.
At the end of productive life, our hens will become a protein source for pet food.
All litter is naturally dried and sold as soil conditioner to fertilize crops on area farms.
Our business succeeds based on the health and welfare of our hens. We have made a firm commitment to managing the risk of our farms to ensure the safety and security of our operations.
Achieving Food Safety Standards
We adhere to stringent food safety protocols and follow Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) in our egg processing facility. An on-site USDA Inspector monitors, and our lab facility conducts, continuous testing to ensure our products meet or exceed all quality standards. We also follow HACCP principles and implement systems to assure food safety from harvest to consumption.
Making Biosecurity a Priority
We strategically built our farm locations to keep our hens and pullets safe and healthy, and we consistently follow strict biosecurity policies and procedures to protect our farms from animal disease. Our new cage-free buildings were purposely constructed with shower in and shower out facilities. On a recurring basis, we conduct regular biosecurity training and participate in recurring National Poultry Improvement Plan (NPIP) audits.
