A Commitment to Transparency and Health: Our Stance on Antibiotic-Free Poultry Farming

In the realm of food quality and safety, few topics have garnered as much attention as the use of antibiotics in poultry farming. Notably, Chick-fil-A, a major player in the fast-food sector, has recently revised their approach to antibiotic usage in poultry, moving away from their previous 5-year plan of "No Antibiotics Ever" (NAE) to a "No Antibiotics Important To Human Medicine" (NAIHM) policy starting Spring 2024. ​1,​​2,​​3​.

At Wormuth Farm, our stance on this matter has been unwavering. We believe in raising our poultry – broiler birds, layer hens, and ducks – in a manner that negates the need for antibiotics, a principle we have staunchly adhered to since our inception. Our methods starkly contrast with the variable policies of larger entities like Chick-fil-A, reflecting our commitment to transparent and sustainable farming practices.

Why Antibiotic-Free?

  1. Healthy Living Conditions Our birds thrive in open, stress-free pasture environments, reducing disease and eliminating the need for antibiotics, a problem often intensified in confined factory farming.

  2. Proactive Health Management Emphasizing preventive care, we ensure our poultry receives optimal nutrition and regular health monitoring.

  3. Public Health Consideration Overuse of antibiotics in livestock contributes to antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Our antibiotic-free approach aids in mitigating this global health concern.

The Chick-fil-A Paradigm Shift

Chick-fil-A's recent announcement to reintroduce antibiotics is a reminder of the challenges faced in large-scale poultry production. Such a move, likely influenced by operational and economic factors, contrasts starkly with the practices we uphold at Wormuth Farm. While we recognize the complexities that large corporations face, we believe that smaller-scale, responsible farming practices offer a sustainable and healthful alternative.

Our Promise to You

Our commitment at Wormuth Farm goes beyond just raising animals; it's about nurturing a healthy ecosystem and providing our customers with the highest quality, pasture-raised poultry. We understand the importance of transparency and trust in food sourcing, especially in an era where consumer choices are increasingly driven by health and ethical considerations.

As you choose your poultry products, remember that at Wormuth Farm, we stand firm in our pledge to raise our birds without antibiotics. It's not just a farming practice; it's a commitment to the health of our animals, our customers, and the environment.
