Company overview:

Handsome Brook Farm is a pasture-raised egg provider, working with a network of small producers to raise organic and conventional eggs according to American Humane certified standards.  We have developed and strictly follow standards for Pasture Raised hens that ensure that our hens forage freely outdoors with protective cover and are able to nest and sleep safely indoors at night with plenty of room to roam, perch, and exhibit natural chicken behavior.   The health and welfare of our hens, the quality of our eggs, and the stewardship of our land are of utmost concern to us.  We currently work with 65 independent producers raising in excess of 700,000 layer hens.  One of the fastest growing food businesses in the country and one primed to challenge the status quo of the egg category, we have launched sales nationally and continue to target aggressive growth in the natural, grocery, mass and club channels.    

Headquartered in New York, our team is small but nimble.  Half of our staff are field and flock supervisors and support staff working with our farms to ensure sufficient quality production and compliance with our certification standards.   We are building out a headquarters team to support our growth and institutionalize the corporate functions of the business.
