The Only Grassfed Welfare Label
An optional, additional accreditation to Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW, Certified Grassfed by AGW is the only certification and logo in the U.S. and Canada that guarantees food products come from animals fed a 100 percent grass and forage diet, raised outdoors on pasture or range and managed according to the highest welfare and environmental standards on an independent farm. While other grassfed labels exist, none can match the breadth, integrity and transparency that Certified Grassfed by AGW offers.

According to recent research, demand for grassfed beef has increased by 25-30 percent every year over the last decade. But while consumer demand for grassfed meat may be sky-rocketing, not all grassfed certifications are what they seem. Some may even permit practices like confining thousands of cattle on dirt feedlots for long periods outside the growing season and trucking in cut grass or forage as feed, or the use of growth hormones and routine antibiotics.
With independent on‐farm audits to ensure compliance with our practical and achievable farm standards, Certified Grassfed by AGW provides grassfed farm businesses with the tools they need to clearly differentiate themselves in the marketplace. This is the one grassfed label that farmers, retailers and consumers can count on to meet their expectations.
This certificate is issued within the scope of the accreditation issued by the IOAS to ISO/IEC Guide 17065. Registration number: 83
