“Growing up working on the farm is just good home family values.”Bob Bixler
Name: Bob Bixler
Location: Berne, Indiana
Years farming: I have been farming for 24 years but this egg farm has been here since 1925.
My family: My wife, Lisa, and I have a four-year -old daughter, Gracyn.
How I came to be a farmer: I started working in the chicken houses and hatchery when I was a young boy. I grew up in my father’s footsteps.
The best thing about being a farmer: I enjoy going to the grocery store and knowing I had a large part in producing the eggs that are in the cooler. I also get a lot of satisfaction from donating eggs to local food banks, knowing that we can make a difference in the lives of people by helping feed a nation.
My personal philosophy on farming: The Berne Hi-Way Hatchery takes great pride in humanely providing safe, affordable eggs for consumers and making a difference in the world in which we live.
