Located in Southern Lancaster County, Frey Brothers, Inc. remains a family-owned business. In 2013 the company was purchased by Ernie Frey’s children (Ernie II, Jamie & Karl) who have been with the business for over 20 years. They continue to provide Quality Products with Hugh Kreider managing the steel division of the business and Dave Wylie being in sales.

Since 1966, Frey Brothers, Inc. has been building and improving some of the strongest cattle equipment on the market. Changes have been made over the years and we now provide a complete line of gates, chutes, feeders, porta-corrals for all types of livestock; including but not limited to cattle, dairy, horse, sheep, swine and alpaca. Each piece of equipment, from the smallest gates to the stoutest chutes, is handmade, piece by piece, to assure the quality our customers demand. Nothing but the most select materials, which meet our strict specifications, is used in our manufacturing process. New steel tubing and sheet metal is electrically welded with continuous wire feeding equipment to avoid the possibility of defects that can occur from using standard welding rods. With the installation of our Powder Coating unit, we also offer sandblasting and custom powder coating for any item that will fit in our ovens.

Frey Brothers, Inc. was in the logging and timber sawing industry from the early 1970’s until the early 1990’s. With the by-product from this material, we started a business providing bulk hardwood mulch in the early 1980's. With the demand from homeowners for bagged material, we started our bagging operation in 1987 with one manual bag line located in an existing building to provide bagged mulches. As the need arose for additional bagged products, we added a second manual line in 1992 to provide bagged soil products. As the demand continued to grow, we expanded the business in 1998 into a new facility which today houses one automatic bag line and two manual lines. In 2001, we once again expanded our business to include a computerized blending system to produce Greenhouse/Nursery mixes. As with our Steel Operation our Mulch & Soil Products and Greenhouse/Nursery Mixes are manufactured from Top Quality Raw Materials. Frey Brothers produces Mulch, Soil and Greenhouse/Nursery Mixes that can be found at Independent Garden Centers from Virginia to Vermont under our name brands: Twin Oaks, Four Corners, Frey and Frey’s
