Meet Jonathan LaFoe

Braswell Family Spotlight

This week’s family spotlight is on Jonathan LaFoe. Jonathan joined the Braswell Family Farms team on November 27, 2017 and made the move to Nashville, NC from southern Indiana with his wife, 18 month old son, and their two horses, two dogs, and five cats.

Jonathan serves as our Live Operations Manager and oversees our mill production and farms across the state. He says he enjoys working with everyone that he has met the past few months and how he has the ability to implement new innovative processes, allowing for every day to hold something new.

Jonathan has been in the poultry industry since graduating from the University of Tennessee with a degree in Animal Science where he also played football as both a punter and outside linebacker.

When Jonathan is not on the farm, you can find him in the kitchen. He loves to cook and is especially excited to try all the fresh North Carolina seafood since moving to the state. His favorite way to enjoy his Braswell Family Farms eggs is a trick he learned from his wife’s family – hard boiled eggs chopped while still warm, served with butter, salt, and pepper. We’ll have to give that one a try!

Welcome to the family, Jonathan!
