Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs produces eggs under the Pete and Gerry's Organic, Nellie's Free Range, and Carol's brands. The company is a fourth generation family farm located in the foothills of New Hampshire's White Mountains.

The company has a strong history of leadership in the egg industry, demonstrating for over decade that consumers demand and are will to pay more for humanely- and ethically-produced eggs from small family farms. Pete and Gerry's became America's first Certified Humane egg producer in 2003, and in 2013 the company became America's first egg producer to achieve the B Corp certification. Pete and Gerry's completed its transition to 100% Certified Humane Free-Range production in 2014.

Currently approximately 90% of eggs consumed in the US come from hens who live their entire life on factory farms in cramped cages. These giant egg factories are not environmentally sustainable, and have pushed most family scale-producers out of business through consolidation.

Pete and Gerry's Organic Eggs produces its Certified Humane Free-Range eggs on over 120 small family farms. These farms are better for the environment, their communities, and consumers. The company seeks to lead a revolution in the way we produce eggs throughout the US.
