Bob Sparboe started the Sparboe Chick Company after returning from service in the Korean War. Originally a baby chick distributor, Bob sold day-old chicks to farmers in a seven county area in Central Minnesota. We’re proud to have been intricately connected to the egg industry for more than 55 years.
