Austin, Springfield and Pasture Belt communities welcome us. We support working families and community initiatives.


Our vendors fulfill our needs throughout all aspects of our business. We strive to be a consistent and reliable partner, from Austin to Springfield.

Our Crew

We are mission-minded people working together to bring ethically produced food from family farms to families’ tables. As pasture-raising pioneers, we’ve grown from a single farm in Austin, Texas to the leading U.S. brand of pasture-raised eggs in the country. Learn more about the people, values and benefits that make Vital Farms a great place to work.

Our commitment to dEI

Here at Vital Farms, we believe in the importance of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI). Just like the transparency you know and trust from the Vital Farms brand, anything we do related to DEI will be Bullsh*t-Free. Our intent is to constantly learn and challenge ourselves to take meaningful actions that directly impact our stakeholders and those around us.

Internally, an important part of fulfilling our mission to bring ethical food to the table is by building diverse teams that reflect varying perspectives. We want to create an inclusive and collaborative culture that embodies our values of Growth, Humility, Empathy, Ownership, and Competing to Win. We are committed to building an environment where every crew member feels valued and that they belong. We do not tolerate racism or discrimination in any form.

We will continue to hold ourselves accountable to the important role we play in helping transition the world around us to a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive place.
