Springer Mountain Farms was the first poultry producer in the world to be certified by the American Humane Association, the oldest and most trusted advocate of animal welfare in the country. Through a detailed certification process, Springer Mountain Farms created practices and procedures that put the health and welfare of its chickens first.

The American Humane Associations’ welfare standards are grounded in scientific research and created with input from animal experts and veterinarians to reflect current research, technological advances, and humane handling methods. The program conducts independent audits to verify that producers continue to meet the requirements for certification.

Thanks to the American Humane Association, Springer Mountain Farms can ensure that only humanely raised chickens make it to your dinner table. For more information on Springer Mountain Farms chickens, head to their website.
