Herbruck’s Poultry Ranch owners honored

Stephen, Greg and Herb Herbruck received the Michigan AgriBusiness Association's Leaders and Legends Award.

The Michigan Agri-Business Association honored Stephen, Greg and Herb Herbruck of Herbruck’s Poultry Ranch with its 2019 Leaders and Legends Award on Sept. 14 at the association’s Outlook Conference on Mackinac Island.

“Herbruck’s Poultry Ranch has been a leader in sustainability and put its hens, employees and community first for more than 60 years, which is why Stephen, Greg and Herb Herbruck are our 2019 Leaders and Legends Award winners,” said Jim Byrum, MABA president. “Herbruck’s has led by example over three generations and will continue to be a leader for generations to come.”

Last year, Herbruck’s celebrated 60 years in business. The poultry ranch is the largest egg producer in Michigan and the 11th-largest in the U.S.

Headquartered in Saranac, Mich., Herbruck’s supplies farm-fresh eggs to retailers and food service outlets across the nation. Herbruck’s was founded by Harry and Marilyn Herbruck in Ionia County in 1958, with roots stretching back to the late 1920s. 

Today, the farm is operated by third-generation and fourth-generation family members, who are continuing the tradition. Herbruck’s has locations in Michigan, Indiana and Pennsylvania. 

MABA presented its first Leaders and Legends Award in January 2013. The award honors individuals who have provided the entrepreneurial spark and taken risks to lead the growth of Michigan’s agricultural industry.
