A Rich History of Family Farming from 1934 to Today

Our Beginning
In 1934, Uncle Talmer (“Tom”) Dybvad set out to share his farm’s top quality eggs with the Willamette Valley. After a successful trip to Portland to establish a base of local customers, he began selling eggs to grocery stores, fine hotels and hospitals.

Tom knew that healthy hens produce the best eggs. With strong demand, he committed early on to fulfilling orders only with eggs that met his high standards of quality and care. Tom’s first hen house held about 400 hens, and eggs were delivered in a 1931 Model A Ford. In time, Willamette Egg Farms became synonymous with premium quality eggs.

Continuing the Same Quality
Today, Willamette Egg Farms is one of Oregon’s remaining commercial egg farms owned and operated by Oregon families. We are proud to help define standards for premium egg production and hen care. Our family’s success has hinged entirely on our commitment to raising healthy, comfortable hens and building strong relationships within our community.
