Hello! My name is Dan Hromas. I started Prairie Pride Poultry in 2013 with a mission to provide healthy, farm fresh, eggs to consumers, to share interesting facts and information about the "Incredible Edible Egg," and to foster an environment whereby everyone can feel welcomed at, and connected to, the farm. Prairie Pride Poultry is situated on fifteen acres of pasture just southwest of Grand Island, Nebraska. The farm prides itself in the humane treatment of the flock...after all, "happy hens lay healthy eggs." I started this farm simply because I love chickens. I've been around agriculture all my life, and one of my fondest memories was visiting Grandpa and Grandma's farm in North Dakota as a child, where (among cattle and pigs) they had chickens...it was an "Easter egg" hunt everyday my family and I were there! After graduating high school in Lincoln, Nebraska, I enlisted in the military. During my time in both the Marine Corps and Army, I've been all over the world. And one common thing I saw was that people enjoy eating. I believe everyone should have the opportunity to eat healthy, wholesome food. In 2012, I joined the Nebraska Sustainable Agriculture Society. I am also a member of Buy Fresh Buy Local and am Homegrown By Heroes certified.
Practices (our standards for raising or making our products)
Prairie Pride Poultry's standards and practices are conducive to a happy and healthy flock. The chickens are treated humanely. I do not cage them; they free-range on pasture. I supplement the flock's "pasture diet" with feed that does not contain any chemicals, hormones, antibiotics or animal byproducts. There are three coops that can be moved around the acreage, each one having plenty of floor area, roosting space, and nesting boxes.
