Holistic Acres

Ashland, Ohio

Profile

Holistic Acres’ fresh, cage-free eggs are a staple around Columbus; faithfully enhancing breakfasts throughout the area for over 18 years. Hailing from the Amish and Mennonite communities of Ashland, Ohio, they offer ample evidence that letting chickens be chickens yields tastier eggs!

Enos Keim started the business back in the early 1990’s, when he found himself with a surplus. He decided to try selling his extra eggs in Columbus, and has since seen the business steadily grow. Back then, cage-free eggs were rare, “I didn’t have any competition,” Enos recalls, and he credits the improved taste with driving Holistic Acres’ early success. Now, Enos and his partner Dean Steiner continue to offer high quality eggs in many communities across Ohio!

Holistic Acres sources its eggs from a collection of Amish and Mennonite farms, with the majority coming from Dean’s father (Enos is Amish, Dean is Mennonite). Instead of spending their days locked up, Holistic Acre hens can run around and go outside. Furthermore, they are fed a vegetarian diet (absolutely no animal byproducts in their feed), and given no antibiotics or artificial hormones. The result: happier chickens and better eggs!
