At Iowa Select Farms, we are wholeheartedly committed to the care of our people—our nearly 1,000 employees who tend to our animals and work in departments that provide service and support to our 700 farms. We owe all of our success to their care and dedication and pledge to be a good employer and continue to get even better.

We believe people care is not about one thing, it’s about everything. There’s a reason the Des Moines Register has designated Iowa Select Farms as a Top Workplace. 




For more than 20 years, we have been committed to responsibly producing pork and providing a safe, quality and wholesome product to our processing customers. Since the beginning, we’ve enforced a strong commitment to providing the best care to every animal, every day. This is rooted in our belief that providing the best care is not only the right thing to do for our animals, but also the right thing for our caregivers, our company, and ultimately, the success of those who produce high quality, safe and affordable food for our growing population.



Iowa Select Farms is proud to be a homegrown Iowa company with homegrown Iowa values. We believe in doing the right thing every day, operating with character and integrity and being stewards of our resources. 
As pig farmers, we fulfill our values every day through SelectCare, and believe by taking care of our animals, people, environment and communities we will achieve our mission of producing pork, responsibly. Learn more about Iowa Select Farms here.


While we stay focused on the goal of producing one billion pounds of safe and nutritious pork for the U.S. and global food supply, we also remain dedicated to doing the right thing to help others, especially in our communities and the state of Iowa.

Jeff and Deb Hansen—owners of Iowa Select Farms—have established a long tradition of charitable giving and are major benefactors of Iowa State University, Hansen Family Hospital in Iowa Falls, Blank Children’s Hospital and Children’s Cancer Connection in Des Moines
