Another blow to the food supply: Explosion and subsequent fire devastate Texas chicken plant

A chicken farm in Texas has been hit by an explosion and a subsequent blaze – causing another blow to the food supply.

My San Antonio News (MySA News) reported that Feather Crest Farms, located outside the city of College Station, was damaged by an explosion on Jan. 29. The fire was reported around 5 p.m. of Jan. 29, with flames engulfing two buildings. Firefighters were still at the scene the following day trying to fight the fire that happened post-explosion, said the Bryan Fire Department.

“Numerous fire departments and firefighters, along with other emergency personnel, are on the scene,” said a separate report by 100 Percent Fed Up. “Black plumes of smoke and flames are visible for miles.”

“It is currently unknown if anyone is injured or how the fire started. [However,] witnesses … reported hearing a large boom before the fire broke out.” (Related: Explosion at Texas dairy farm kills over 18,000 cows.)

According to One America News, Brazos County Sheriff Wayne Dicky has reported that Highway 21 is reduced to one lane and that Democrat Road is now closed. He also urged drivers and onlookers to stay away from the incident area.

“Police told the National Desk no injuries had been reported. Officials have not released if any animals were hurt or killed. It’s also unclear what caused the fire and the estimated damage,” said MySA News.

No injuries reported at Feather Crest Farms fire

Jason Ware, deputy emergency management coordinator for Brazos County, later remarked that the fire was contained to the two metal buildings in the vicinity. He added that this blaze is expected to burn for days.

“Upon arrival, there were two buildings on Feather Crest Farms property. At this time, the fire is contained to the two buildings,” said Ware. He also pointed out that while traffic along Texas 21 East will remain normal, some surrounding roads may be affected. Ware also reiterated the Brazos County Sheriff’s Department’s reminder for drivers not to stop along the road.

Feather Crest Farms has been in operation since the 1950s, but was purchased by the Barrett family since the 1970s. Indiana-based MPS Egg Farms acquired Feather Crest in 2020. The current operator is T.J. Klein, a graduate of Texas A&M University.

An April 2020 piece by Feedstuffs magazine expounded on MPS’ acquisition of Feather Crest. It noted: “The acquisition expands the MPS operations by approximately one million hens, for a total of 11 million hens producing approximately 9.35 million eggs a day. [It also] significantly enhances MPS’ geographic footprint, enabling the company to better serve existing and potential customers in Texas and beyond.

MPS Vice President for Operations Dan Krouse said at the time that there are no immediate expansion plans for Feather Crest. However, he mentioned that remodeling existing facilities and expanding production are included in MPS’ long-term plan.

“We hired everyone that was employed at Feather Crest Farms, a total of 96 people. [This] brings our total to about 630 employees nationally,” said Krouse.

The explosion and fire at the Feather Crest Farms in Texas serves as the latest incident in a long string of food facility fires that have been occurring since 2022. This has led many to believe that the food supply is being deliberately sabotaged by the powers that be.
