Farming Practices

Every Grass Roots animal is born, raised and harvested in the USA. They graze on natural, non-GMO pasture and are never treated with hormones or antibiotics. Our chicken and turkey scratch and peck on fresh pasture daily and because they are not ruminants are supplemented with non-GMO, custom-mix feed ration containing probiotics and nutrients.

We practice regenerative farming that fosters a diversity of plants, uses no-till methods, and incorporates grazing animals to restore the soil and respect the animals. Our farms and processing facilities maintain the highest standards and provide economic opportunities in rural communities.
