Braswell Family Farms, a Nashville, N.C.-based franchisee for Eggland's Best, Malvern, Pa., built its first pasture-raised farm in partnership with a local producer.

The farm, located in southern Virginia, is a state-of-the-art facility with one hen house and 21 acres of organic pastureland for hens to roam.

“The creation of our pasture-raised farm allows us to supply a growing area of the egg market that is important to our customers,” says Trey Braswell, president.

Braswell Family Farms’ first pasture-raised egg was laid on March 20. These pasture-raised eggs can be found under the Born Free brand at Lowes Foods and other retailers.
