"Maine Egg Producers was a clearinghouse and packing plant for locally produced eggs. This plant was built in 1956 by A.S. Treworgy at 136 Route 1, near the Maine Medical Complex. The plant was state of the art when it opened. Eggs from area poultry houses moved on conveyor belts. They were graded and packed in a cooling room that was maintained at 50 degrees, a temperature that helped preserve freshness."Show Details
