LISA STEELE | Fresh Eggs Daily®

I am the founder of the popular brand Fresh Eggs Daily® which has more than a million followers worldwide. After leaving a lucrative career on Wall Street where I worked for several years after college, I've been raising a backyard full of chickens, ducks and geese since 2009 - and writing about it.

My blog was named one of the Top Ten Gardening Blogs by Better Homes & Gardens magazine in 2014 and currently enjoys more than 500,000 page views each month - and has had more than 64 million visits since I started it in 2012 - while my six books on raising backyard flocks have sold more than 185,000 copies worldwide and been translated into Russian,  French and German

My work has been featured in many national publications such as Business Week, Buzzfeed, Down East magazineForbes, the Huffington Post,, The New York Times, Outside Magazine, Parade magazine, Popular Science, Readers Digest, Real Simple, The Splendid Table, The Spruce Eats, USA Today, The Wall Street Journaland The Washington Post and on The Hallmark Home & Family Show, KTLA, California Live, New York Living, Martha Knows Best on HGTV, NPR's Here and NOW and The View among others.

 I have also written articles for HGTV,  Backyard Poultry magazine, Hobby Farms magazine and Chickens magazine.

I currently produce and host the award-winning "country lifestyle" television show Welcome to my Farm which can be seen on more than 300 public television stations across the country, nationwide on CreateTV, and streaming on PBS Passport - and also on public television in Australia and New Zealand. Welcome to my Farm has won 12 Telly awards, 2 Taste awards, and been nominated for 2 regional Emmy awards.

I am an accomplished home cook and Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School certified recipe developer. My debut cookbook, The Fresh Eggs Daily Cookbookwas published by HarperCollins in 2022, has sold nearly 30,000 copies, and been translated into Russian. It received a coveted Publishers Weekly starred review and was chosen as an Amazon Editors Best Cookbooks of the Month upon release.

In 2024, I launched a brand-new recipe site Coop to Kitchen to share many of the recipes from my cookbook and TV show, as well as other family favorites.

In 2018, I launched a private-label line of natural poultry products which has grown into a $1 million business on and Amazon and began appearing on retail store shelves early in 2024.

I have also collaborated with many national brands such as Duluth Trading Co., The Spice House, Lehmans, Stonewall Kitchen, Oakhurst Dairy, Lodge, and Wayfair.

I live on a small farm in central Maine with my husband, our corgi, and more than two dozen chickens, ducks and geese. My unique approach raising backyard flocks naturally, using lots of old-timers methods the way my grandparents did, as well as herbs and other holistic preventives has resonated with readers and led to the continued success of my brand.
