Vital Farms is a Certified B Corporation and Delaware Public Benefit Corporation that offers a range of ethically produced pasture-raised foods nationwide. Started on a single farm in Austin, Texas, in 2007, Vital Farms is now a national consumer brand that works with approximately 200 small family farms and is the leading U.S. brand of pasture-raised eggs and butter by retail dollar sales. Vital Farms’ ethics are exemplified by its focus on the humane treatment of farm animals and sustainable farming practices. Vital Farms’ pasture-raised products, including shell eggs, butter, hard-boiled eggs, ghee, egg bites and liquid whole eggs, are sold in approximately 16,000 stores nationwide.
Since day one, our purpose has been rooted in a commitment to Conscious Capitalism, prioritizing the long-term benefits to our stakeholders, who include farmers and suppliers, customers and consumers, communities and the environment, and crewmembers, and stockholders. Our business decisions consider the impact on all our stakeholders, in contrast with the factory farming model, which principally emphasizes cost reduction at the expense of animals, farmers, consumers, employees, communities and the environment.
We have defined our company values as (1) Be Humble, (2) Act Like an Owner, (3) Lead with a Growth Mindset and (4) Practice Empathy. We strive to create a culture that reflects these important pillars of our business.
We are Humble: We recognize that we win and lose as a team, and we leave our egos at the door.
We Act Like Owners: We know our crew plays a critical role in our success and want them to have a stake in the outcome that they help create.
We Lead with a Growth Mindset: We bring the drive to succeed, the desire to learn and the energy to keep raising the standards on everything we do.
We Practice Empathy: We know that we get to better answers when we incorporate different perspectives and experiences into our work.
