We wanted to celebrate 2017 International Women's day by highlighting some of our wonderful egg farm'her's!

Check out some of the leading ladies below.

Tonya Haverkamp

Starting off with Tonya Haverkamp! We're happy to have Tonya attending the #DaughtersOfTheVote Gala this week hosted by Equal Voice.

We're proud to have this smart, inspiring and driven woman on our egg farmers team!

See more about Tonya here.


Nathalie & Valérie Grenier

Next up on our fantastic list of women for International Women's Day, are Nathalie & Valérie Grenier.

These two lovely ladies not only work with their family to help run an egg farm, but Valérie is an internationally ranked skier with Alpine Canada!

See more about the Grenier family here.


Carolyn Griffith

A well-respected and well-known name in egg farming is Carolynne Griffith.

Known for her many accomplishments, she made history by becoming Egg Farmers of Ontario's first, and only (to this date, we're sure there will be more!) board chair woman.

Valérie, Véronique and Vanessa


This sister team of Valérie, Véronique and Vanessa Beachesne, run a farm of their own in eastern Ontario.

They were also featured in our 2014 Who Made Your Eggs Today? ads and are a perfect example of breaking stereotypes.

These three girls are kickin' butts and takin' names! See for yourself here.


Kayla Veldman

Kayla Veldman is one of our next generation farmers!

She is proud to pursue her post-secondary education and bring her learnings back to the farm.

See more about Kayla and her family here.

Stephanie Nanne

Our final eggs-ceptional, female farmer is Stephanie Nanne.

She is another one of our next generation egg farmers and is inspired to continue a family tradition by the generations before her, since her family has been farming for more than 200 years.
