Michigan egg producers are giving consumers a look inside their barns as part of National Egg Month this May.
Michigan Allied Poultry Industry Executive Director Allison Brink tells Brownfield virtual tours are available on their website.
“We recently just put up some 360 virtual tours of a hen house, a turkey barn and a chicken broiler barn. We’d love for people to talk a look inside our barns.”
They’ve also partnered with the Critter Barn in Zeeland to educate about poultry production.
Brink says last year producers also donated five million eggs to local communities to make sure as many people as possible have access to local, nutritious eggs.
Donations throughout 2018 were made by DeWeerdt Poultry Farm, Farm Crest Foods, Herbruck’s Poultry Ranch, Schipper Eggs, Sunrise Acres Egg Farm, VandeBunte Eggs and Zoet Poultry.
Michigan is the nation’s sixth largest egg producer.
