PROOF is a free range certification program for pastured eggs, pork, chicken, beef and lamb from animals that have been raised on pasture in open fields. We offer help, support and promotion for our farmers. The PROOF Core Values are clear, concise and easy to follow, underpinning standards that provide transparency and information to our consumers.
What Does Pastured Mean? 'All animals are born and raised outdoors with continuous and unconfined access to pasture throughout their life time. They are kept at a stocking intensity that will ensure forage is always available in a sustainably managed rotational grazing system.*'
Pastured eggs and pork from pigs and chickens roaming around out in the open, free to graze, root around in the earth, peck, dust bathe, roost and investigate their outdoor surroundings, sheep and cattle that enjoy the freedom of a paddock, that is what you expect from a free range farm!
We promote PASTURED as the true measure of ethical and sustainable food production. Raising pigs and chickens in the outdoors is nothing new, it has been practiced for centuries and it wasn't until around the 1950's that intensive, housed production systems were born. Pastured pork and egg farming is a little old fashioned really but that's just the way we like it and given the rise in demand for free range pork, eggs and chicken, so do you! Look for farms that are certified free range with PROOF
