Rose Acre Farms has purchased a 5.88-acre site in Seymour, Indiana, to accommodate the egg company’s need for more office space.
According to a report from WBIW, Rose Acre Farms purchased the property at 1541 W. Tipton Street in Seymour for a price of $1.25 million. Tony Wesner, chief operating officer for the company, said the purchase was made because Rose Acre Farms had outgrown its existing office space at its headquarters on State Road 258 between Seymour and Freetown.
Rose Acre Farms is the second largest egg producer in the United States, trailing only Cal-Maine Foods. The company had a flock of 24.8 million layers in 2014, according to the WATTAgNet Top Poultry Companies Database, and is progressing with plans for an $80 million egg complex in La Paz County, Arizona and a layer complex in Red River County, Texas, which is expected to include 14 layer houses.
