Animal Welfare Approved (AWA)

Animal Welfare Approved audits, certifies and supports farmers raising their animals with the highest animal welfare standards, outdoors on pasture or range. Called a “badge of honor for farmers” and the “gold standard,” AWA has come to be the most highly regarded food label when it comes to animal welfare, pasture-based farming, and sustainability. All AWA standards, policies and procedures are available on the AWA website, making it one of the most transparent certifications available. (AWA)
