I got the news yesterday that my cows & I had been certified. What an honor.
Hopefully, I will be a role model and mentor for other farmers who want to certify their herds and flocks. It is a very thorough process and all aspects of the farm & management are scrutinized.
The ‘World Society for the Protection of Animals’ has endorsed the AWA standard as “the most stringent” of any third-party certifier.
