In addition to being a bestselling poultry author (her first book Fresh Eggs Daily:Raising Happy, Healthy Chickens Naturally is still one of the top-selling chicken keeping books almost five years since its release), Lisa Steele is the darling of the backyard chicken keeping community. She is the founder of the Better Homes & Gardens award-winning blog Fresh Eggs Daily®, the country’s most well-respected and well-known chicken keeping brand, and one of the very few that focuses entirely on natural chicken keeping.
A 5th-generation chicken keeper, Maine Master Gardener, aspiring herbalist and coop to kitchen cook, Lisa engages fans worldwide with her easy, fun, and genuine approach to raising backyard flocks using time-tested methods incorporating herbs and other natural supplements. She inspires both the newcomer and the seasoned chicken keeper alike to grab a pair of kitchen shears and head out to the herb garden on their way to the chicken coop.
A former 4-H kid, Lisa's passion for chickens shines through whether it's sharing the recipe for her all-natural coop cleaning spray, hanging curtains or discussing which herbs to use to freshen the nest boxes. Lisa provides the first-hand know-how to keep your chickens in tip-top condition from the small hobby farm in Maine she shares with her husband, flock of chickens and ducks, two dogs and indoor/outdoor tuxedo cat.
In addition to authoring books and touring the country speaking and making public appearances, Lisa writes for various national publications, and has been featured on the front page of the Wall Street Journal, as well as in American Farmhouse Style, Country Living, The Cottage Journal and Down East (the special "Martha Stewart" edition) magazines.
Having appeared on several national radio and television programs including the Hallmark Home and Family show, P. Allen Smith's Garden Style on PBS, NPR, Good Day Sacramento, Good Morning Maine and Bill Green's Maine, most recently Lisa hosts her own chicken lifestyle television show "Fresh Eggs Daily with Lisa Steele" on the CW (WPXT/WPME-TV) in the local Portland, Maine viewing area.
When not traveling, writing, tending to her chickens, ducks, gardens and home or spending time with her husband and their dogs, Lisa can usually be found cooking and baking using fresh produce from the garden and fresh eggs from the coop, or curled up in a corner reading or knitting. She loves pretty things, good coffee, classical music and snow - especially at Christmas time.
Books include: Fresh Eggs Daily: Raising Happy Healthy Chickens Naturally, Duck Eggs Daily: Raising Happy Healthy Ducks Naturally, Gardening with Chickens, Let's Hatch Chicks and 101 Chicken Keeping Hacks.
