Logan and Olivia Barr, along with their three children, Addison, Aurora and Adrienne, own and operate Plum Creek Farms, 3A Poultry, Little Addie's Egg Farm and the Plum Creek Farms Countryside Market. In 2011, Logan began working for Dean and Amy at Plum Creek Farms, as their first full-time employee. A few years later, Logan and Olivia took over the egg portion of the business, and in 2015 Little Addie's Egg Farm was born. The hens of Little Addie's are allowed to roam free (weather permitting). Each day the eggs are collected, washed, weighed, and packed, all by hand. They are then stored in a large walk-in cooler until they are delivered by Plum Creek Farms each Wednesday.
When they are not collecting eggs or spending time outside Addison, Rory, and Adrienne enjoy spending time with their pet goats. 2020 has been a learning year for sure, as they had their first set of kids and are learning how to feed and care for them!
2018 brought a lot of changes for Logan and Olivia. In addition to purchasing Dean and Amy's home, which is located on site at Plum Creek Farms, they relocated their hens, making distribution of the eggs easier for everyone.
As they became more involved in the family business, an opportunity presented itself for them to become producers at Plum Creek Farms. For a portion of each year 3A Poultry raises, processes and packages chickens for distribution by Plum Creek Farms. Logan and Olivia uphold the same farm management standards and practices that Plum Creek Farms has been known for from the beginning.
2020 brought bigger changes for Logan and Olivia as they purchased Plum Creek Farms from Dean and Amy Dvorak. In conjunction with taking over the day to day operations of Plum Creek Farms, Logan and Olivia own and operate 3A Poultry and Little Addie's Egg Farm providing chicken and eggs to Plum Creek Farms for distribution. They are also part owners and operators of the Plum Creek Farms Countryside Market. Olivia is a stay-at-home mom, caring for their three children, helping on the farm, at the store, and in the office whenever possible.
Patrick Dvorak is the son of Dean and Amy Dvorak. He grew up on the farm, and has seen Plum Creek Farms grow and flourish over the years. After graduating high school in 2014, Patrick decided that he wanted to branch out into other areas of work. He worked construction, and then decided to follow one of his dreams and become a hunting guide, guiding elk hunts for a part of the year. While he loves his job as a guide, it does not provide year-round employment. During the rest of the year, Patrick works on the farm he grew up on, raising and processing outstanding quality chicken. When the opportunity to become a producer for Plum Creek Farms became available, Patrick, with his knowledge of the process, and commitment to the high standards of farm management expected, was a perfect fit. Patrick also works along side Dean providing grass fed ground beef for Plum Creek Farms and can often be found in the tractor mowing and baling hay.
Trevor and Cara Jasa, along with their son Landon are the owners of Jasa Poultry. Cara is the daughter of Dean and Amy Dvorak, and has been working at Plum Creek Farms since 2014. She helps with the processing and packaging side of things. She now works part time so she can be at home with her son Landon for part of the week.
Trevor works for the Nebraska Department of Roads out of the Tecumseh office. He has been working there since 2017, he is a Construction Technician 2 and also helps plow snow when they are short handed. Trevor also helps pitch in at the farm when needed.
Trevor and Cara are expecting a new baby in June and are very excited to add a new little one to the Plum Creek Farms family!
Dean and Amy started Plum Creek Farms in 2003, providing farm fresh, free-range chicken eggs to their customers. Demand quickly grew from local restaurants and grocery stores, not only for eggs, but also for the chicken itself. They began small, butchering just 30-40 chickens per week on site at their farm, and selling them to their customers. Word quickly spread throughout the community of restaurants and grocery stores about the quality of chicken that Plum Creek Farms was providing, and the business quickly began to grow.
In 2005, the demand for their chicken was still growing so they decided to make some changes around the farm. The egg-layer buildings were remodeled and turned into grow buildings for the broilers. This allowed them to quit using the small portable hoop buildings, while at the same time increasing production to keep up with demand.
Having family involved in the operation of the business has always been important to Dean and Amy. As demand continued to grow, they hired their son-in-law Logan Barr in 2011, and shortly after, hired their daughter Cara Jasa, and son Patrick Dvorak to keep up with the expanding work duties and customer base.
During the past few years Dean and Amy continued to work at growing the business, and in 2018, the decision was made to convert Plum Creek Farms into a distribution company. Dean and Amy were able to move off of the farm, turn over control of some of the day-to-day operations, and involve family in the production of chickens for Plum Creek Farms.
2020 brought big changes for Dean and Amy. They sold Plum Creek Farms to their son-in law and daughter, Logan and Olivia Barr. Dean still occasionally helps out around the farm but is now pursuing other interest including grass fed beef. Dean has always had a passion for cows and providing high quality grass fed ground beef allows him to further pursue his passion. Dean and Amy are still staying involved with the family business by owning and operating the Plum Creek Farms Countryside Market.
