Lisa Steele

Lisa Steele is an author, popular television and radio guest, and creator of the blog Fresh Eggs Daily, the premiere online resource for chicken-keeping advice. Lisa has amassed an audience of nearly one million from all over the globe, who look to her for tips on raising backyard poultry naturally, gardening tips, and her coop-to-kitchen recipes. Her previous books on chicken keeping have sold more than 125,000 copies worldwide and are among the bestselling chicken-keeping books in print.

Dubbed "queen of the coop" by the media, Lisa has been recognized by many national media outlets, including the Wall Street Journal, Forbes, USA Today, Country Living, Farmers’ Almanac, and Parade. As a television and radio personality, Lisa has appeared on the Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family, Martha Knows Best on HGTV, P. Allen Smith’s Garden Home, and NPR’s Maine Calling. Her first book was recommended summer reading on The View in 2018, and her website was featured on an episode of The Dr. Oz Show that was focused on eating eggs. Lisa also hosted two seasons of the Telly Award–winning television show, Welcome to My Farm, on NBC in Maine.

A fifth-generation chicken keeper and Maine Master Gardener, Lisa lives in rural Maine, with her husband, their corgi and barn cat, and her “girls”--a mixed flock of about thirty hens, ducks, and geese. Plus one fairly grumpy rooster and a drake named Gregory.
