All big things start small, but few major farms start as small as family-owned Kreider Farms did, with 102 acres of land and only 12 cows. Today, the farm spans more than 2,500 acres and includes approximately 5 million egg-laying chickens, 2,000 cows, and 225 employees. The farm distributes its eggs, milk, and premium ice cream throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, and reports that it has become one of the largest egg producers in the state of Pennsylvania. Kreider Farms’ wares have been endorsed by multiple chefs, a more meaningful accolade than the cardboard crowns of excellence distributed by fast-food eateries. The farm takes its environmental mission seriously, treating the land with respect and adopting ethical and environmentally responsible practices. Workers happily share their knowledge and story with others during 90-minute farm tours or virtual tours on the website.

“Things not known beforehand: the tour is mostly done from within your vehicle, with narration provided over FM radio by the guide, who was very knowledgeable and sweet and who drove in front of the participating autos leading us around the farm's scattered locations; make sure your car's windows and vent system are closed as you tour the feed silos, manure pond, and cow palace; the drive thru the center of the cow palace was worth the price of the tour; except for the on-foot look at the milking operation--which was also priceless--there are no hands-on activities for children, except for what is seen thru the car window; the milk product samples were delicious and O/U kosher”
“The tour was great (thank you Andrew) and would recommend it to any family with young children. ”
