Glenwood Foods, LLC, located in Jetersville, Virginia, has been in the Braswell family of companies since 1997. Glenwood boasts of being the only USDA inspected egg production operation in the state of Virginia; and, like our Carolina Egg Company, is an active supporter of its own state's department of agriculture's program, Virginia's Finest, encouraging the healthy consumption of local, sustainable and fresh foods.

Glenwood's outstanding in-line operation that also houses approximately 500,000 layers has distribution that primarily focuses against the Mid-Atlantic region from New York to southern Virginia. But, like its sister company, also extends distribution both nationally and internationally.

Glenwood's key point of difference vs. other egg producers is its ability to provide to its customers custom egg labeling and innovative packaging, not to mention its efficient delivery system servicing the marketplace. For example, our "date on egg" labeling allows for retailers to provide additional information to their health-conscious consumers.
