Meet the Snader family. The chicken industry has been in the Snader family for several generations, with Matt’s grandfather working at Tyson, overseeing part of the chicken division. Matt has been raising chickens since he was 11. His first attempts were Silkie Chickens, one which was named Mr. Pibb. The first chickens he ever raised were sold at Green Dragon, close to Ephrata, Pa.
Matt often spent many hours while growing up helping his neighbor on their chicken operation in Narvon, Pa, where they would raise several hundred thousand chickens a year. In 2014 the Snader family moved to Alaska. Matt works out of his home office in Anchor Point, Alaska. The Snaders do raise chickens and guineas which are sold locally in AK.
Brian Witmer also joined the team in Feb of 2015. His sons Tyler and Trent and wife Irene, also are involved with the business. Brian runs the Ephrata, PA office.
