After high school, Bruce Dooyema pursued a career on the family farm southwest of Sioux Center doing both dairy and egg production. After a dairy barn fire in the fall of 1986, the Dooyema family decided to turn their attention to egg production only. Today, the farm — Center Fresh Egg — has operations in four counties in Iowa and also in the African nation of Mozambique.
As a father of three daughters, Lindsey, Tessa, and Whitney, Dooyema knows that his family expects the same high-quality, affordable and safe eggs that consumers demand. As an egg farmer, he is committed to doing what is right for his hens, the environment and his community. Bruce is proud to provide Americans and those in Mozambique with affordable and nutritious food
Dooyema currently serves on various boards and committees including: American Egg Board, United Egg Producers, Iowa Egg Council, the local Community Hospital & Health Center, Farmer Alliance Group, American Farm Bureau Advisory Committee, and the local Agriculture Committee. He is also a member of the local ambulance squad and enjoys family, golf, traveling, and growing the mission field around the world, including the African nations of Mozambique and Swaziland. He has been a life-long member of Bethel Christian Reformed Church and is the youngest of three brothers. Bruce is a 1981 graduate of Unity Christian High School in Orange City and it is there that he meet his wife. They were then married in 1984.
