Animal Welfare Approved


AWA audits, certifies and supports independent family farmers raising their animals according to the highest animal welfare standards, outdoors on pasture or range. The Animal Welfare Approved label verifies that participating farms are putting each individual animal’s comfort and well-being first. AWA assists farms with market development while also providing technical support and consumer education year round.

Farmers interested in seeking AWA certification or consumers who want to know more about AWA initiatives should check out their website and a guide to certification process. A list of AWA standards can be found here.
