NATURAL, OUTDOOR ACCESS

USING POULTRY STANDARDS

FARM/BREEDING NETWORKS

Provide birds access to natural, outdoor pasture and allow birds the opportunity to perform natural and instinctive behaviors essential to their health
and well-being.

All breeding flocks of poultry are identified by the Poultry Standards noting where the breed originated. Genetic lines must trace back multiple generations; and exhibit traits that meet the standard guidelines for breed.

Develop local networks of farmers who are committed to sustainable poultry production models that promote and encourage sustainability through raising and selling poultry products locally.

CARE OF THE BIRDS

Humane and conscientious attitude toward the birds in their care, housing and husbandry as laid out in welfare standards of the SPN–USA™. The standards premise is that animals are allowed to behave naturally, ensure social interaction, comfort, with physical and psychological well-being.

Commitment to working and cooperating with local farmers for ongoing education: training for understanding, coaching for implementation and mentoring for multiplication. Our goal is to reproduce other local self-supporting, sustainable-poultry farmers.

Intentionally connect with those who prepare birds for eating; inform chefs and consumers of the nutritional differences between genetically engineered poultry and historical, heritage breeds. Equip them with marketing tools to be successful and profitable in their business.
