Bio

The Animal Welfare Approved program audits and certifies family farms that utilize high-welfare methods of farming. Farmers benefit from having a third-party affirmation of their practices and consumers benefit by knowing that the label means what it says. What Does the AWA Seal Mean for You? Animals are raised outdoors on pasture or range on true family farms with the "most stringent" welfare standards according to the World Society for the Protection of Animals in both 2008 and 2009 reports. The standards have been developed in collaboration with scientists, veterinarians, researchers and farmers and incorporate best practice and recent research. Annual audits by experts in the field cover birth to slaughter. We encourage you to sign up for the email list to receive monthly announcements about new farms, special events and breaking news.
