Pete and Gerry’s Eggs
Pete and Gerry’s Eggs (along with sister brand Nellie’s Free Range Eggs) became Certified Humane® in 2003, and as such, became the first egg producer in the country to obtain the certification.
Since that time, Pete and Gerry’s Eggs has grown into the largest organic brand in the country, and Nellie’s Free Range has grown into the largest free range brand.
Pete and Gerry’s Eggs and Nellie’s Free Range Eggs have grown by staying small. Instead of achieving growth by adding barn after barn of their own, they’ve partnered with other small family farmers like themselves, most of whom have one or two laying barns on their farm. And they’ve maintained a commitment to animal welfare by meeting, and sometimes exceeding, Humane Farm Animal Care’s (HFAC) standards for space, light, access to the outdoors, feed requirements, fresh water availability, and so on.
