Basic economic activities of Wakefield include farming; cattle and
hog feeding; poultry; egg production; and wholesale greenhouse flowers,
organic vegetables, and landscape plant production. The Wakefield
area has grown considerably in the past decade. Contributing to
the increase was an $18,000,000 dried egg products facility for M. G.
Waldbaum and the MPM Farms, a 2,400-cow dairy.
Some say, "There isn't a bad egg in Wakefield." And
to some extent it's true! Michael Foods Egg Products Company is
one of the most innovative and successful egg and egg-product companies
in the world. While the egg division is the primary entity of
the company, Michael Foods Egg Products Company expansion into other
product lines has played a key role in the company's international success.
Today, some 53 years after its founding, the Michael Foods Egg Products
Company employs more than 2,000 people in seven states with approximately
800 people employed in Wakefield.
