While consumer demand for grassfed meat may be sky-rocketing, not all grassfed certifications are what they seem. Some may even permit practices like confining large numbers of cattle on feedlots for long periods outside the growing season and trucking in cut grass or forage as feed, or the use of growth hormones and routine antibiotics.
With independent on‐farm audits to ensure compliance with our practical and achievable farm standards, Certified Grassfed by AGW provides grassfed farm businesses with the tools they need to clearly differentiate themselves in the marketplace. This is the one grassfed label that farmers, retailers and consumers can count on to meet their expectations. This certification is also available in the U.S., Canada and Africa.
We were looking for a farm certification that could communicate quickly what takes a long time to explain—the involved and thoughtful sustainable practices we adhere to here at the Wolf Creek Farm. When AWA expanded their certification to include the new Certified Grassfed by AGW label we jumped at the opportunity. The more farms that can get into this program and get certified, the better the stewardship of the land and the animals.
