Eggs Around the World

Sparboe Farms was contacted by the Iowa State Fair Food Department and we were asked if we wanted to sponsor an egg contest and we said YES! Our contest is going to be “Eggs Around the World”

Here’s the description of the contest:

Eggs are an excellent, affordable source of high quality protein and are eaten by people all over the world. Each culture has their own ways of using eggs in meals throughout the day. Sparboe Farms, your local Iowa egg farmer, wants to know what your favorite internationally inspired egg dish is! We appreciate your participation in our contest and your support of Sparboe Farms – you can find Sparboe Farms brand eggs at your local grocery and convenience stores in Iowa.

Rules: Recipes must use at least 3 eggs and be inspired from an international recipe. Entries will be judged on taste (35%) presentation (35%) and creativity/international inspiration (30%) with cash prizes going to the top 3 entries. All entrants’ recipes will be featured in Sparboe’s recipe section at www.sparboe.com

The Iowa State Fair is in Des Moines, IA and runs from August 8-18, 2013. If you live in Iowa, stay tuned to find out when our contest will take place and stop by and see what we’re sure will be an amazing bunch of entries!

We’re 75% of the way there on “Fill the Truck”

We are excited to announce that we are 75% of the way to filling the truck! As a reminder, this campaign is with our customer, Fareway, and together we are donating a truckload of eggs to the Iowa Food Bank Association to feed families in need.

The campaign has been mentioned in TV, radio and print media outlets and was even mentioned in our industry publication put out by CEAM and The Shelby Report, which is a grocery industry publication.

If you live near a Fareway, help us get that last 25% and purchase a dozen eggs so that we can make this important donation to the community in Iowa.
