Meet Our Mentor and Co-founder of LaBelle Farms
In 2000, Herman Lee established LaBelle Farms along with Nelson and Hector Saravia. Herman’s story follows that or so many of the team that makes up the LaBelle Farms family.
In the early ’70s, Herman came to America to find his American Dream. By 1977 he was working at the family garment factory while getting an education at the Fashion Institute of Technology.
In 1984 Herman moved to Ellenville and began an egg operation with over 15,000 laying hens. Herman learned a lot from this experience and it provided the foundation needed for the next leap which he took in 2000 when he founded LaBelle Farms with Nelson and Hector Saravia.
We believe quality products come from well-cared-for ducks. That’s why we grow our own corn and soy, ensuring our ducks receive the freshest, best quality feed. We never use antibiotics, choosing to rotate our flocks through different locations, allowing us to pressure wash and disinfect their spaces on a regular basis. Our ducks are kept in well-ventilated, climate-controlled barns, where they have plenty of space to roam with access to free-standing food and water.VIEW PRODUCTS
