Solar Farm Creates Renewable Energy in Frytown Iowa


The newly expanded solar farm in Frytown, Iowa is now complete. It will soon be providing 100% renewable energy for two companies with ties to Kalona OrganicsTM. Farmers’ Hen House, Frytown Properties, and Farmers Creamery, makers of the Kalona SuperNaturalTM brand.

The 30,000 square foot Farmers’ Hen House building will be using roughly 750,000 kilowatts of 100% renewable energy.  Ryan Miller, Farmers’ Hen House CEO, says, “It is the perfect next step for us.  We already source our product from local, sustainable, and organic farms.  Moving to renewable energy is the right thing for us to do.”

Frytown Properties is currently providing warehouse and distribution services for Awesome Refrigerated Transit of Iowa (ARTI). ARTI is a sister company to Farmers Creamery. They transport Kalona SuperNaturalTM products and provides transportation services to other customers.  Bill Evans, Farmers Creamery CEO, adds, “We are excited about what this means for all of our companies.  In the near future, production capabilities will be added at the Frytown facility. The ability to power it with 100% renewable energy supports our company’s mission.”


Farmers Creamery, makers of the Kalona SuperNaturalTM brand, produces certified organic dairy products for Kalona OrganicsTM, based in Wellman, Iowa, a small farming community in the heartland of America.

Farmers’ Hen House produces great tasting eggs from humanely treated hens that live on local Amish and Mennonite farms in rural Southeast Iowa.

Kalona OrganicsTM is based in Kalona, Iowa, a small farming community in the heartland of America.  Kalona works with small, sustainable family farms to provide delicious organic dairy products from pasture-grazed cows. Their products are minimally processed so they can deliver dairy foods in the most natural state possible.
