We’re often asked “What does pastured pork mean?” Well here’s an example of what what we refer to as pastured pork. Our hogs move all around our farm in locations that have been strategically planted with various types of natural forages that grow best in that particular season. These guys were just moved this morning and are loving their new stomping ground. We look forward to servicing you with our pastured pork. Email Roddy@greenbrierfarms.com for whole and half sides of pork and other meat needs.

When you see the Global Animal Partnership label on products, like meat, eggs and pet food, do you know what it means?

G.A.P.'s Animal Welfare Certified label means that animals are raised without antibiotics or added hormones, and are fed a vegetarian diet with no animal by-products. The higher the number, the more the animal's environment mimics its natural environment.

See our website https://globalanimalpartnership.org/shoppers to learn more about our standards and find brands that produce G.A.P. Certified products. #MakeItGAP #farmanimalwelfare #humanelyraised #cagefree #modernfarmer #vegetarianfed #chicken #poultry
