Our organic products, which include the ROSIE® and SONOMA RED® brands, meet the requirements of the National
Organic Standards Board and are Certified USDA Organic.
In fact, the ROSIE® brand was
the first chicken to be Certified USDA Organic. Certified Organic means raised
in a free range environment on certified organic farms, fed a non-GMO diet with
no animal by-products and never given antibiotics.
All of these requirements have
to be certified by a recognized third-party; we use Oregon Tilth, a nonprofit
research and education organization dedicated to biologically sound and
socially equitable agriculture. The organic certification process covers not
only the end product, but also every step of the process and supply chain, all
the way to market.
