Meet Canada’s young egg farmers!By Egg Farmers of Canada
When you picture a farmer, what do they look like? Let me take a guess—you aren’t picturing a young person. But what if I told you that 30% of Canadian egg farmers are under the age of 45? It’s true. Egg farming in Canada is a young industry.
Here at Egg Farmers of Canada, I’ve had the chance to work with young egg farmers across the country. They share an intense passion for the work they do and the land they call home. But most of all, they love producing delicious, nutritious, made-in-Canada eggs for all Canadians to enjoy. In honour of these young leaders, we’ve compiled some of our favourite tweets from young farmers across Canada:

Egg farming is a fantastic career choice for young people. Working with animals in a stable, sustainable industry is a great way to make a living. These young farmers are doing the work they love, and we couldn’t be happier to support them.
