G.A.P. Species: Pigs

Pig farms vary significantly depending on geography and climate, which is why our tiered program supports continuous improvement, and is not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ model. As with all of the animals in the G.A.P. program, our third-party certifiers audit every farm, every 15 months to ensure our standards are being met.

Access a detailed version of our comprehensive standards in the documents below or reference this quick, at-a-glance overview of the key standards being met at each certification level to understand which level could be achievable for your farm or ranch.

All levels of certification:
Farrowing crates and gestation stalls prohibited | No antibiotics ever | No added hormones* | No animal by-products | Every farm 3rd party audited every 15 months

*Federal regulations prohibit the use of hormones in raising pigs.

Standards in green indicate a new or changed requirement from the previous certification level.
