It’s hard to believe we’re already a few weeks into the new year! If you’ve made a resolution for 2023 to do even more to support farms that are producing food using high-welfare animal management and sustainable farm practices, our team at A Greener World is eager to help you reach your goal.
At A Greener World (AGW), we understand that the way we raise animals, the nutritional quality of the food they produce, and the impact of the farming system on the environment are all intrinsically linked. By certifying farms using high-welfare practices, we help ensure animal welfare – which means:
- Animals are able to behave naturally in low stress environments, which leads to healthier animals that produce more nutritious food.
- Animals are raised outdoors on pasture. This not only has positive benefits for the animals but is also good for the environment and water quality.
- Medicines are used only when necessary, preserving their vital role.
Simply put, positive animal welfare has benefits for animals, people, our planet and our food system. At A Greener World, our goal is to provide you with simple, straightforward solutions so you can choose foods that truly match your values when you’re shopping or dining out. Each of our farm certification programs—Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW, Certified Grassfed by AGW, Certified Regenerative by AGW and Certified Non-GMO by AGW—are designed to have positive and measurable impacts that encourage truly sustainable farming practices.
