The organization strives to grow the organic egg industry with integrity, a mission Brunnquell himself is closely aligned with.
"I'm thrilled to be elected as the president and move many of our priority action items forward, including more humane, ethical standards for egg production in our industry," said Brunnquell. "I am committed to creating more awareness about animal welfare and educating America on why freedom tastes better."
The Organic Egg Farmers of America collaborates in the production of eggs in a nonbiased, ethical way to maintain the organic standards and cultivate an honest environment to better the entire egg industry.

His goal continues to be expanding awareness and knowledge about animal welfare, with a pursuit to move more farms in the United States to Pasture Raised or Free Range in the future.
Brunnquell has served as a board member of the Organic Egg Farmers of America for the last five years. He is a third generation farmer and entrepreneur.
