The eggs are produced in Kreider’s state-of-the-art, cage-free aviaries. They have earned USDA, SQF and American Humane Association certifications. Organic cage free and cage free hens are fed an all-vegetarian diet with no antibiotics, animal by-products or growth hormones.
The new Kreider eggs are available in Grade A Large and are sold at select supermarkets and farm markets in New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland. They will be featured at many of the 250 ShopRite supermarkets on the East Coast including Philadelphia and South Jersey area stores. Check your local ShopRite weekly circular for pricing and availability.
“Our new, modern cage free aviaries feature the finest quality control, animal welfare and food safety available,” said Dave Andrews, vice president of sales and marketing for Kreider Farms. “And, we have upgraded our other chicken houses, too. Last June, we closed the last remaining conventional-style chicken house. All our non-cage free chicken houses now feature larger cages, tunnel air ventilation and daily manure removal belt systems. Kreider Farms is one of a very select few egg farms in the United State to feature 100 percent upgraded state-of-the-art production and processing facilities in both caged and cage free housing.”
The Noah’s Pride line of eggs is named for Noah Kreider Senior, the grandfather of current Kreider Farms president and CEO, Ron Kreider and Ron’s father Noah, Jr. Noah Kreider Senior and his wife Mary Hershey Kreider (cousin to Milton Hershey) began the farm in 1935. The Kreider/Hershey homestead farm has remained in the Hershey family since Christian Hershey settled in Manheim, PA (Lancaster County) in 1739.
