National Food Corporation After working in their father's egg business for many years, Jerry and Vince Bookey started their own company, Northwest Egg Sales in 1956. They originally graded and distributed eggs purchased from local farmers, and then established their own production farms known as Cherry Lane Farms. Those activities grew over the years to become the current National Food Corporation, a fully integrated egg production and marketing company with its own feed mills, pullet farms, layer farms, shell egg grading plants, further processing plants and distribution facilities. Bookey family members still own and operate the company, with third and fourth generation egg producers playing an active role in operations and management.
