About Vital Farms
Vital Farms’ mission is to bring ethically produced food by partnering with family farms to operate with defined organic agricultural practices. The humane treatment of animals is a central value. The company sells eggs and butter in select stores around the US.

Products and Ingredients:

Vital Farms aims to encourage customers to support family farms by consuming their organic eggs and grass-fed pasture raised butter. 
 
Founders Matt and Katherine wanted to go back to their roots and gave farming a chance. They bought a small piece of land in Austin and started raising their first flock of 50 rescued, organic laying hens.
 
Not too long after, they were selling in Farmers’ Markets around Austin and were quickly discovered by Whole Foods who them started selling their Pasture-raised Organic Eggs in 2008. Then other stores also began selling their eggs in 2009.
 
The eggs began as a backyard hobby and transformed into a sustainable company supporting the farming community. Over time, the company supplied pastured eggs to hundreds of grocery stores and restaurants from California to Maine and worked with an increasing number of farmers around the country. The company creates a high level of quality and accountability on their farms. 
 
All of Vital Farms eggs are Certified Humane, paleo approved, gluten-free, antibiotic and hormone free. The company is also a Certified B Corporation, meaning that Vital Farms has met the rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency. 
 
The three egg products have different mixes of certifications in addition to being Certified Humane®. Vital Farms’ Lucky Ladies eggs are also NonGMO Project Verified while their Vital Farms and Pasture Verde Organic Eggs are USDA Organic certified. Their  Alfresco eggs are Certified Humane only.
 
Certified Humane® pasture-raised hens means that the hens each get a minimum of 108 square feet of pasture to roam. There is a regular rotation to keep the pastures heathy and covered in fresh grass. Harmful chemicals are never used on any of the farms. The hens’ varied diet and ability to forage all year round produces better tasting eggs. 
 
To make the grass-fed, hormone-free, and antibiotic-free butter, small herds are managed by American family farmers on well-managed lands. The animals are free to graze every day and as a result of their healthy living conditions, they supply rich and high-fat milk. 
 
The cream is churned in small amounts and slow speeds until the butter producer gets the desired consistency. Once the buttermilk is drained off to be used elsewhere, the remaining butter is sent to be packed.

Online Reviews/Complaints:

Customers love the taste of the eggs, very much appreciate that the animals are humanely treated, and are happy to support family farms around the country. Regular customers are okay with paying the higher price for better quality and humanely-raised hens. 
 
The main purchasing barrier is that the eggs and butter are only in select stores and customers who cannot buy the products will pay a bit extra with the shipping cost from Amazon.

Competitors and Alternatives:

There are many farms around the US producing pasture-raised organic eggs including Tree Bird Organics, Common Good Farm, Handsome Brook Farm, and Kingbird Farm.

Where to Buy?
