The PROOF pastured free range standards are as uniform across all livestock species as possible to avoid any confusion about what PROOF stands for. Our core values are at the heart of each standard.
The PROOF standards offer your farmers commitment that the licensed farm raises their livestock on pastured open fields. The key focus of PROOF is to ensure that all animals do get to live and graze outdoors in a farm environment that is as close to nature as controlled farming will allow. It has become more important than ever for consumers to know that the meat and eggs they purchase was raised outdoors as they expect it to be. The following standards expand on our Core Values and demonstrate what a true free range farm should be.
