Bringing Peace and Balance to Cows, and Consumers

“The Certified Humane® program created a gold standard for animal welfare.” That’s the word from USA Today. Good Housekeeping™ says it’s “a label you can really trust.” We couldn’t agree more, and that’s why we’re so committed to the Certified Humane Raised and Handled® program. It’s the only animal welfare label requiring the humane treatment of farm animals from birth to death. Run by a national, non-profit organization called Humane Farm Animal Care, or HFAC, the program improves the lives of farm animals by setting rigorous standards, conducting annual inspections and certifying the animals’ humane treatment and care. In other words, we are taking the right steps to be sure that Green Valley cows have ample space, shelter and gentle handling. They receive plenty of fresh water and a healthy diet free of antibiotics or hormones. And they will live and behave naturally, free of cages, crates or tie-stalls. Since the quality of dairy products depends on the quality of care the cows receive, the Certified Humane® label lets you know that Green Valley Organics® is the finest yogurt or kefir you can buy. Taste them, serve them and you’ll feel good about them. And if you’d like to learn more, visit the Humane Farm Animal Care website at www.certifiedhumane.org.
