The Animal Welfare Approved program audits and certifies family farms raising their animals humanely, outdoors on pasture or range. Farmers who earn the AWA seal benefit from having a third-party verification of their high-welfare practices and consumers benefit by knowing that the humane label means what it says.

Animals are raised outdoors on pasture or range on true family farms with the “most stringent” humane animal welfare standards according to the World Society for the Protection of Animals. Annual audits by experts in the field cover birth to slaughter.

AWA is able to offer this certification and technical and marketing services to farmers at no charge. Because AWA is not financially dependent on farmer fees, the program is unbiased and completely transparent.

With so much green-washing in the market today, how can you be sure that any labels on your meat or dairy products mean anything? Naturally raised? Sustainably raised? Free Range? These terms have little value. One way to guarantee that your food is treated humanely is to see if it is Animal Welfare Approved. This certification is not easy to obtain and their standards are very strict. You can find farmers and read their standards on their website. http://www.animalwelfareapproved.org/
