A native New Englander who has recently moved to Maine, Lisa Steele is a highly successful and prolific writer best known for her blog FreshEggsDaily.com. As her family has done for generations before her, she raises her own backyard chickens and ducks using time-proven natural methods. On her blog, Lisa tries to inspire her readers to raise their flocks the way old-timers did, using herbs and natural supplements. Also an avid gardener and aspiring herbalist, she shares garden tips, homemade concoctions and recipes using her fresh eggs and produce from the garden. Fresh Eggs Daily has been named a Top Ten Gardening Blog by Better Homes & Gardens magazine and her Facebook page is followed by more than half a million fans.
In addition to writing her blog, Lisa is a published author. Her first book; Fresh Eggs Daily: Raising Happy, Healthy Chickens…Naturally (St. Lynn’s Press, 2013) is a best seller and has maintained the top spot in the chicken keeping category on Amazon for much of the time since it was released, and was quickly followed by her second book Duck Eggs Daily: Raising Happy, Healthy Ducks…Naturally (St. Lynn’s Press, 2015). Lisa is currently working on a third book scheduled to be released at the end of 2016.
When not writing her blog or working on her next book, Lisa writes for various periodicals including Grit, Countryside, Backyard Poultry, Chickens, Molly Green and Hobby Farm magazines and featured in Good House Keeping, Southern Living and HGTVGardens. She also tours the country speaking to audiences about raising chickens using herbs and natural supplements. She has appeared on national radio and TV shows including P. Allen Smith’s Garden Home (PBS), the reality show Coop Dreams (Destination America), the Hampton Roads Show (WAVY 10) and Bill Green’s Maine (WLBZ2).
Lisa and her husband are enjoying life on their 125-acre farm with their mixed flock of chickens and ducks, German Shepherd and Corgi who half-heartedly guard the flock and an intrepid barn cat. Lisa is looking forward to learning firsthand about Zone 5 planting, currently dreaming about her spring herb garden and impatient to start hatching some new chicks and ducklings.
