Here’s What You Need To Know:
Here’s a snapshot of the important information that will help you learn more and make informed decisions:
Organic Meat: The term “organic” relates to how the food was produced and processed.
- Everything Is Organic: This means all the food your chicken or pig or cow ate was organic. The grass they foraged and the feed they consumed all met national guidelines and qualifications from the USDA to be considered organic.
- No Synthetic Pesticides: All organic products are grown without the use of man-made pesticides.
- No Antibiotics or Growth Hormones: All organic livestock is raised without the use of antibiotics or growth hormones.
All-Natural Meat: All-natural products are minimally processed but require less regulation than organic.
- Less Expensive: With fewer regulations, raising all-natural animals gives the farmer the power to control all aspects of his land and farm. This keeps costs down so your meat is less expensive than the organic option.
- Minimally Processed: To meet FDA specifications, all-natural meat must be free of artificial colors, sweeteners, flavors, sweeteners, and preservatives.
