Marcus Rust is the CEO of Rose Acre Farms. Growing up on the farm in southern hills of Indiana, Marcus did every aspect of the egg business and row crop farming the old fashioned way first. Before 1966, Rose Acre never had a hen in a cage. Rose Acres finished its first one million bird inline cage facility in 1974, and closed down the last cage-free house in 1976. Today, the farm is making a loop back to its roots and admits they have a lot to relearn as they finished a three million bird cage-free farm in 2015.
