COVID-19 and your eggs: an update from us
Words by: Family Farm Team
To our friends in the kitchen,
Since the beginning of this pandemic, your news feeds, inboxes, and texts have been filled with messages from companies about the precautions they are taking to protect the health of their workers, customers, and community. It was overwhelming for many, and so we made a conscious decision to avoid posting to social media.
We are aware that you may be seeing our product out of stock at the stores near you, and we’re doing everything in our power to get it back on shelves. The pride we take in nourishing your family comes second only to the health and safety of our Family Farm Team. We are taking all necessary precautions to ensure that both our eggs and our staff are safe. We are considered “Essential Workers,” and that is a job we do not take lightly.
During this period of uncertainty, we wish to be a source of sustenance as well as inspiration in your kitchen. Not because recipes or activities and are what’s most important right now, but because it feels good to focus on the things within our control that can bring us comfort.
To close, we wish to extend our most sincere gratitude to all of our Essential Workers, including our production line team and all of our small family farmers. If you have found yourself without work, we invite you to take a moment to browse our current open positions.

During this difficult time, we've been lucky to connect with fellow B Corps and local companies in a special way. Through neigborly bartering, we've assembled care packages for our incredibly hard-working onsite employees in New Hampshire and Pennsylvania, providing our team members and their families with nutritious food and household staples. We're incredibly grateful to the following companies for their support and collaboration, and to those who come to work each day to ensure that families across the country continue to have access to our eggs.
In addition to keeping our own employees healthy and nourished during this time, we've made an effort to support our local communities through egg donations and ongoing deliveries. Below are some of the schools, programs, restaurants, and healthcare facilities we've had the privilege of supplying eggs to:

Hi Folks! In November 2019 I contacted you about sending my empty Pete and Gerry's egg cartons and sending them to you for recycling. I still don't have ten yet, but wanted to know if you are still doing this recycling service. I continue to enjoy these eggs! Sincerely, Lynne in Eugene, OR
Hi Lynne, thanks for reaching back out to us. We are so glad you are still enjoying our eggs and wanted to let you know we are still accepting cartons via our carton take back program. Send us an email at [email protected] when you are ready to send them in and we'll gladly assist you.
