Meat & Poultry

Our Priority:

Animal Welfare, Transparency, & Organic Offerings

We place a priority on animal welfare, transparency, and sourcing Certified Organic offerings. Certified Organic products must adhere to strict standards that include non-GMO feed, access to the outdoors, and no hormones or antibiotics.

The HIGHest STANDARDS

If a farm is not certified organic, we require documentation to ensure the animals are being raised with access to the outdoors and no antibiotics or hormones. We also evaluate farm’s feed, handling, and processing practices.
