PEOPLE CARE

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.

OUR ANIMAL CARE

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.

Pork production is not for everyone—it can be a tough job, a messy job and it’s always and every-single-day job. It’s what we do at Iowa Select Farms though, because we’re farmers, and proud of it. Owners Jeff and Deb Hansen are third-generation Iowa farmers.

Our mission for Homegrown Iowa is to share with you the stories of our ag adventures. We’re proud to be a homegrown Iowa company in the heart of a homegrown Iowa industry—pig farming. Follow along here.‪

COMMUNITY CARE

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
