About Lisa


With an audience of nearly a million followers that spans the globe, 5th generation chicken keeper Lisa Steele is well-recognized as the creative force behind Fresh Eggs Daily®, the most popular destination for natural poultry keeping advice on the internet, and one of the most influential players in the backyard chicken keeping community.

She has been dubbed "Queen of the Coop" by the media, dishing out advice on raising chickens, ducks and geese naturally via her Better Homes and Gardens award-winning blog and social media platform for more than a decade.

In addition to being an "eggspert", Lisa is also a Maine Master Gardener, avid DIYer and accomplished "coop to kitchen" cook using fresh eggs from her coop and fresh produce and herbs from her gardens in central Maine.

Carrying on her time-honored family tradition (she grew up across the street from her grandparents chicken farm in Massachusetts), Lisa and her husband share their farm with a mixed flock of nearly two dozen chickens, ducks and geese, along with a corgi and indoor/outdoor tuxedo cat.

With more than 130,000 copies of her six popular books in print, making her one of the most popular top-selling poultry authors of all time, Lisa is currently working on her seventh - a cookbook which will be published by the Harper Horizon division of HarperCollins in February 2022.

In addition to writing books, handling her social media accounts and writing her blog, Lisa produced and hosted the "country lifestyle" television show Welcome to my Farm which aired on NBC in Maine from 2019-2020. The show was nominated for 2020 and 2021 regional New England/Boston Emmy awards and won three Telly Awards in 2021. It will begin airing on PBS nationwide starting in April 2022.

As the go-to girl of the backyard chicken keeping community, Lisa Steele has been featured on dozens of national and local television and radio shows including The View, NPR, the Hallmark Home and Family show, Martha Knows Best on HGTV, Dr. Oz, P. Allen Smith's Garden Home on PBS, Good Morning Maine, Good Day Sacramento, Great Day Houston, and KTLA.
Lisa has also appeared in numerous print publications including the Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, the Saturday Evening Post, the Farmers Almanac, Country Living magazine, Down East magazine, American Farmhouse Style, Country Gardens, Country Woman, in Forbes, the LA Daily News, USA Today, Parade Magazine and by Buzzfeed, Tasty inc, and the Associated Press.

Lisa's line of all natural poultry products which she launched in 2018 can be found online on Amazon.com and Chewy.com and at select retailers across the country.
