Jesse LaFlamme, CEO, Pete & Gerry’s Organics
CEO Jesse LaFlamme is a part of “Generation Organic.” After graduating from Bates College in 2000, Jesse decided to return to Monroe, NH to join his Dad, Gerry on the family farm. Rather than joining the ranks of his peers entering the workforce in jobs in a field related to his degree in Political Science and Economics, he moved back to Monroe, a town of approximately 800 people to work on the family organic egg farm. Since 2000 the company has been very fortunate to have seen remarkable growth in the organic food sector. Since he has taken the helm, Pete & Gerry’s is being recognized as a leader in humane, environmentally responsible and sustainable egg production.
LaFlamme and his team produce organic and cage-free eggs, Nellie’s Nest cage-free eggs, and are now producing Pete & Gerry’s Heirloom Eggs on its own farm as well as on more than 30 family farms. The company is committed to working with family farmers to help farmers add value to their own farms as well as to further prevent the decline of family farming in the United States. The company has added farmers to its family who are new to farming, who have added on to their current farms (both egg and dairy), and we also work with farmers who have converted from dairy to egg farming.
Under the company’s CEO Jesse LaFlamme, the farm produces Certified Humane®, cage-free organic and natural eggs and is committed to finding new, resourceful methods for sustainable organic farming. Sold under the Pete & Gerry’s and Nellie’s Nest brands, their eggs have been held to the highest standards by four generations of family farmers. Pete & Gerry’s takes pride in its hens and feeds them grain that is free of antibiotics, medications, pesticides and herbicides. Pete and Gerry’s Organics ships its products throughout the U.S. More information is available at www.peteandgerrys.com.
