Animal Welfare Approved

Certified Grassfed by AGW

awa-certified-grassfed-words_lrCertified Grassfed by AGW is the only certification and logo in the U.S. and Canada that guarantees food products come from animals fed a 100% grass and forage diet, raised outdoors on pasture or range, and managed according to the highest welfare and environmental standards on an independent family farm. While other grassfed labels exist, none can match the breadth, integrity, and transparency that Certified Grassfed by AGW offers.

According to recent research, demand for grassfed beef has increased by 25-30% every year over the last decade. But while consumer demand for grassfed meat may be sky-rocketing, not all grassfed certifications are what they seem. Some may even permit highly questionable practices like confining thousands of cattle on dirt 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 really trust.
