Meet our CARE Certified Partners

In Heinen’s Meat Department, we believe in finding family farmers and ranchers who care about food as much as we do. We have certainly found these values in the farmers and ranchers who raise Heinen’s beef, pork and Gerber’s chicken. Through thick and thin, they take care of us so that we can take care of our customers.

We’re proud to introduce you to our CARE Certified partners.

Gerber’s Amish Farm Chicken

Gerber’s Amish Farm was founded in 1952 when Dwight and Melva Gerber began processing chickens that were raised on their family farm. They delivered these fresh chickens to customers’ homes in their local community. This humble beginning has evolved into a growing family business that now has modern processes. Fresh, clean chicken that has a natural taste has always been the standard for the Gerber family, as proven by Dwight’s first motto “Quality worth crowing about™.”

The second and third generations of the Gerber family continue to believe that customers still want the highest quality and best-tasting chicken available. The Gerber family is very proud of the quality reputation their chicken has earned. Today, they market their chicken as Gerber’s Amish Farm Chicken®.

When you purchase Gerber’s chicken, you can trust that you’re supporting a company committed to the highest standards of animal welfare, food safety and honest labeling.

Heinen's Grocery Store

By Heinen's Grocery Store

In 1929, Joe Heinen opened the doors of a small butcher shop on the east side of Cleveland, Ohio, aiming to establish himself as the city’s purveyor of quality meats. As customers came into Heinen’s new shop for their meat purchases, they began asking him to carry groceries as well. Joe added homemade peanut butter, pickles and donuts and by 1933, business had grown enough to include a line of produce and canned goods. Heinen’s Grocery Store was born.
