More about Lisa Steele and Fresh Eggs Daily:
Lisa Steele isn’t a newcomer to raising chickens. She’s a proud 5th generation chicken keeper! Growing up across the street from her grandparents’ farm, she was raised seeing them care for their own chickens, using the meat and eggs in the family’s diner. Steele left her farming roots for a while, going to college, working on Wall Street, moving with her Navy husband. Eventually, she ended up back on a small farm where she reignited her own passion for raising her chickens and ducks and helped others do the same. She quickly became recognized as an eggs-cellent source of information and inspiration for the resurging chicken keeping movement.
