Versova, formed in 2016, is a holding company with a shared management team to guide the business functions of a group of farms that includes Centrum Valley Farms, Iowa Cage-Free and Center Fresh Farms in Iowa, as well as Trillium Farms in Ohio.
Versova was formed to bring the dedicated teams of 1,350 employees from these farms together as “One Team” with a meaningful culture and enhanced opportunities for growth and advancement, and to position the farms for innovation, stability and flexibility.
Today, Versova is defined as A family of companies; a company of families. As a family of companies, we have four individual farm companies, each with their own distinct identity. Over time, more companies may join the Versova family as our business in egg production grows.
Of equal importance, Versova is a company of families. Our rich history includes a number of families who grew from deep roots in egg production, including the Deans, Hennings and Boomsmas. There are more than 25 families represented in our partnership and Board, each of which has a voice in our business.
Trillium Farms established in central Ohio
Established in 2011, Centrum Valley Farms is located in north-central Iowa and brings together more than six decades of egg farming knowledge. Our farms are committed to being open and honest with customers and the public, and to maintaining the highest standards for food safety and quality.
Our eggs are processed and packaged directly on our farms to assure safety, freshness and quality before they are shipped to customers. From our family-owned egg farms to homes and businesses across America, customers can be confident our eggs are farmed responsibly.
Established in central Ohio in 2011, Trillium Farms has grown into one of the largest egg producers in the country and produces roughly one-third of all Ohio eggs. Trillium has extensive production operations and processes both shell eggs and liquid eggs on site to ensure quality and freshness.
Our eggs are processed by a team that is committed to food safety, environmental protection and responsible on-farm practices. In addition to our roughly 3.65 billion eggs produced annually, Trillium farms also has 400,000 cage-free hens.
The first Iowa Cage-Free farm was established in Goldfield, Iowa, in 2008 and has since grown significantly. In 2014, a second farm was added to Iowa Cage-Free in Clearfield, Iowa. The two farms are home to about 2.5 million hens that live in an enriched, cage-free environment and lay about 720 million eggs each year. Iowa Cage-Free is focused on producing high-quality, cage-free eggs to meet consumers’ and customers’ growing demands for such products.
Located in Sioux Center, Iowa, Center Fresh Group has grown into one of the country’s leading producers of shell eggs and egg products. The company was founded in 1978 by a group of Iowa farming families who shared the same core values that Versova stands by today. The farm manages Hawkeye Pride Farms and Sioux County Egg Farms in Iowa, and also has operations in Mozambique and Zimbabwe, Africa.
