Pine Manor Farms chickens are raised to meet a variety of third-party animal care, wellbeing and production standards. Watch and read to learn more!
To start, each of the 140+ farms that raise birds for the Pine Manor brand are audited by Where Food Comes From, Inc. to meet the Global Animal Partnership 5-Step Animal Welfare Rating standard. Founded in 2008, the program focuses on animal care and wellbeing and is designed to promote and facilitate transparency in how animals are housed and raised. If these standards are not met for all birds on the farm at the time of the audit/inspection – a Step rating will not be assigned. To date, all Pine Manor farm locations have received a Step 2 or 3 Rating under the Global Animal Partnership standard.
In addition, the Pine Manor Farms brand is also Non-GMO Project Verified, indicating that Pine Manor chickens are only fed non-GMO feeds. To achieve this, Where Food Comes From, Inc. conducts annual audits of the farms and feed manufacturing facilities and requires significant product testing to confirm all feeds meet the Non-GMO Project requirements.
If it’s Certified Organic chicken you’re looking for, you can find that under the Pine Manor Farms brand as well! Pine Manor dedicates a portion of their farms to organic production to continue to meet the growing demand for organically produced food.
