Handsome Brook Farm was founded in 2007 at a small bed and breakfast in Franklin, NY with a flock of 5 hens. Almost immediately, guests started to praise the high quality and exceptional taste of their eggs. The owners realized the flavor was a result of the free, pastured lifestyle the hens lived and they soon began collecting similarly raised back yard eggs from their neighbors and selling them to local stores.
As demand grew, Handsome Brook Farm built a network of small farms in the local Amish and Mennonite community. From this perch, the company hatched its core values: ethical treatment of animals, fair treatment of farmers, affordable pricing and sustainable agriculture. These principles remain critical to the company today.
Today, the company’s farm network to includes more than 65 small family farms from New York to Oklahoma. Handsome Brook Farm is now the number one organic pasture raised egg in the U.S. and is available at more than 3,500 points of sale nationally, including Kroger, Publix, and Sprouts.
