The humane treatment and 100% grass-fed diet of our cattle are fundamental to everything we do. That’s why our practices—and those of all the folks we partner with—meet highest standards of animal welfare. Sometimes we even exceed them!
Certified Humane: The gold standard
Humane Farm Animal Care (HFAC) is a leading nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the lives of animals in farm production. Our 100% grass-fed ranches all meet HFAC’s rigorous standards and regularly pass their thorough inspection processes.
The “Certified Humane Raised and Handled” label on our beef is your guarantee that we practice what we preach when it comes to humane animal care—from the food our animals eat to the monitoring and gentle handling they receive. (And stay tuned! We aim to have all the cheese we source Certified Humane as well.)
Our ‘no feedlot’ commitment.
Going beyond even Certified Humane standards, all our cattle spend their entire lives on pasture, and never see a feedlot (no matter how humanely designed it is). We believe that cattle were meant to roam freely, not cram into pens.
Working with those who share our passion.
For us, it’s not enough to just source beef. We know our suppliers and our animals. We visit all the ranches we source from, and only partner with ranchers who we know share our practices and beliefs. We’ve raised a lot of cattle, so we know what to look for.
How does allowing our cattle to graze as they should help to create a healthier world? We’ve partnered up with the Savory Institute, a global non-profit working hard to restore our planet’s grasslands. Learn more »
