Sunrise Acres Egg Farms – Looking Back

Sunrise Acres is an Egg Farm located in Hudsonville, Michigan. Sunrise Acres was started by Marvin and June Patmos with 100 chickens in 1949. Sunrise Acres was started as a family business and has remained a family business.

Here are a few photos we found that help to tell the story of the family behind Sunrise Acres.
