Most eggs in the United States today come from farms that crowd hundreds of thousands of laying hens indoors. Handsome Brook Farms does things differently. In this episode, CEO Jordan Czeizler talks to host Lisa Held about how the company built a network of small, organic, farms producing pasture-raised eggs, many of them owned by Amish and Menonnite farmers. They also get into why egg prices soared during the pandemic and how Handsome Brook’s operations have been affected by COVID-19.
