The majority of animals produced for food in the US, comes from large factory farm conglomerates, designed solely to maximize agribusiness profits at the expensive of our health, environment, and animal welfare. “Considered” centers on small, family owned Animal Welfare Approved farms, that raise animals for food with the highest ethical and environmental standards. In order for the farms to be certified, animals must be raised on pasture in their natural state of physical and psychological well-being, meeting specific criteria for each species. Animals are allowed to behave naturally, and perform their instinctive behaviors essential to their health and well-being.
Less than 1% of animals raised for food, are treated in this manner.
