Audubon Conservation Ranching
The Audubon Conservation Ranchingprogram certifies that our cattle graze on land managed with bird friendly practices. Prairie grassland bird species are in severe decline largely due to the conversion of cattle ranches to crops like corn and soy. Having a healthy and diverse bird population and doing all we can to support our resident, migratory, and breeding species is one of our key tenets.
American Grassfed Association
Being certified by the AGA means our animals are fed a lifetime diet of 100% forage; that they were raised on a pasture, not in confinement; and that they were never treated with added hormones or antibiotics. The standards for AGA certification are strict; and we are proud to not only pass their stringent criteria for product accreditation but also communicate the value of grass fed products to our surrounding community.
Western Sustainability Association
Hay Mama is a Certified program in the Western Sustainability Exchange, a nonprofit that “pursues environmental stewardship, economic prosperity, and community well-being as interlinked goals.” The WSE Certification ensures that an operation adheres to the following principles: treats animals humanely, eliminates hormones and sub-therapeutic antibiotics, significantly reduces or eliminates chemicals used in production practices, and protects open space, wildlife habitat, and water and soil quality. We share these priorities with WSE and are happy to partner with them to help evangelize how critical it is that we further the consumption of humanely raised, grass fed beef.
Raised In Montana
We are proud to be one of 3400 program participants in theMade in Montanaprogram; certifying that our beef is 100% Montana grown and raised.
