Well-raised meat refers to meat that is produced from animals that have been raised in a humane and sustainable manner.
At Wormuth Farm, animals are given ample space to move around, access to pasture, and a diet that is appropriate for chicken and lamb. Additionally, our farm's meat is free from hormones and antibiotics. These practices ensure that our animals are treated ethically and the environment is protected.
Well-raised meat is considered a part of sustainable agriculture because it is produced in a way that is both environmentally and socially responsible.
Environmentally, well-raised meat production systems are designed to minimize negative impact on the environment, such as reducing pollution, conserving water and energy, and protecting soil and biodiversity.
Socially, well-raised meat production systems prioritize animal welfare, worker safety and fair treatment. This often means that well-raised meat is produced by small-scale farmers, like Wormuth Farm, who prioritize ethical treatment of animals and the environment, rather than by large factory farms that prioritize efficiency and profit.
Overall, well-raised meat is considered a more sustainable option compared to conventional meat production, as it aims to preserve the environment and animal welfare.
We take great pride in the way we raise our animals and it's important to us that our customers know that they're getting high-quality, sustainable meat.
