In the spring of 1952, Dwight and Melva Gerber started distributing eggs and fresh vegetables out of their home in Kidron, Ohio. As word got around that someone was delivering items from the Amish Country of Ohio, many inquiries regarding fresh chicken products started to surface. As demand for the Gerber’s farm-raised chicken continued to increase, the business began to grow. Now, three generations later, Gerber’s Poultry is a thriving business committed to providing customers with high quality, great tasting chicken.
