G.A.P.’s Animal Welfare Certified food labeling program also means that animals are raised without the use of antibiotics, added hormones, or animal by-products. The higher the number, the more the animal’s environment mimics its natural environment.

From Farm to Fork,
the label you can trust.

It's Earth Day! At G.A.P., we are grateful that so many of our pasture-raised partners use regenerative agriculture methods like rotational grazing and holistic management to manage their animals and their land. We also celebrate partners @777bisonranch, @atkinsranch, @whiteoakpastures, @rangepatagonian, @forceofnaturemeats, and @applegate for their commitment to the Savory Institute's Land-to-Market regenerative program. The program certification is focused on soil health, biodiversity and ecosystem outcomes. Thank you to these companies and all of our partners who are both stewards for our animals and our land.

Happy as a pig in mud! 🐷We've all heard the phrase but do you know why pigs are happy in mud? Pigs don't have functional sweat glands so, to cool down, they need prolonged moisture. Mud keeps the pig's skin wet longer than just water, so they can "keep their cool" much longer.

For all pigs raised to G.A.P.'s Outdoor Access (Step 3) animal welfare standards and higher, we require that pigs have outdoor enrichments like wallows, outdoor sprinklers, and showers. Just one more way our standards positively impact the lives of farm animals. Want to know more about our pig standards? Check them out here >>> https://globalanimalpartnership.org/standards/pig/.
