America's Leading Supplier of

Hickman's Egg Ranch,
5.60 million hens

Founded in 1944, Hickman's Egg Ranch,
also known as Hickman's Family Farms, is a familyowned business with hens in Arizona and Colorado, distribution operations in Iowa, Nevada and California, and
customers from Iowa to Hawaii. As of Dec. 31, 2019, the
company's layer flock included 5.6 million hens. 
On April 4, Hickman's Family Farms suffered the
loss of a new barn at its egg production facility in
Tonopah, Arizona. Because the barn was new, it had
not yet been populated. 
Company President Glenn Hickman said in an email
to WATT Global Media that a few birds in a nearby barn
may have suffered from smoke inhalation, but the only
production losses would be from the disruption of feed,
lights and water for a few hours and the incident was not
expected to have any impact on Hickman's customers.
Hickman's packages eggs in polyethylene terephthalate,
known commonly as PET, the clear plastic used for water
and soda bottle containers. The company recycles more
than 1 million water bottles weekly for its packaging.
Hickman's has partnerships with Central Valley Eggs
and Colorado Eggs.
