Standards & Protocols

Regeneratively-Raised / Beyond Organic

We are not certified Organic, but instead we like to say we go “beyond organic” as everything we raise is on pasture and as nutrient-dense as possible. For instance, our chickens are supplemented with a certified organic corn and soy-free feed and our beef is 100% grass-fed.

We are committed to regenerative agriculture practices that not only produce high-quality products but also improve the health of our soil, animals, and the environment. It helps improve plant diversity [3], increase soil carbon levels [4] [5], and improve the ecosystem’s function [6] [7].

Our regeneratively raised animals are thoughtfully rotated across expansive pastures, allowing them to feast on nourishing grasses. This grazing regimen contributes to the animals' well-being and robustness while bolstering the soil's carbon sequestration capacity, thereby combating environmental degradation. The benefits to the animals are insurmountable.

Animal Benefits

  • Improved metabolic health [8]
  • Reduced cortisol levels (less stress) [9]
  • Treated humanely at all times
  • Raised as nature intended, with fresh air, grass & water
  • No antibiotics, no hormones

Through the adoption of regenerative agriculture techniques, we can eliminate the reliance on synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides, which have the potential to harm the environment. Instead, we place our trust in natural systems to sustain the health of our livestock and the landscapes they graze upon.

By choosing regeneratively raised meat from Apsey Farms, you are also championing sustainable farming practices that prioritize the welfare of our animals and the well-being of our planet.

We treat animals with respect and care. That's why all of our animals are ethically raised in a low-stress environment, with plenty of room to move and express their natural instincts. 

We take pride in the fact that our animals are treated with the utmost care and attention. From open pastures to low-stress handling and humane harvesting, we’re committed to ethical farming practices. We only partner with family-owned abattoirs with humane, transparent operations.

Our commitment to sustainable farming practices ensures that our animals are raised in a way that supports the environment and promotes their well-being.

Pasture-Raised Beef & Chicken

Our cattle are rotated through the pastures year-round, giving them access to graze the grass and forage. When snow makes grazing impossible in the winter, we feed them hay which we make ourselves from our fresh pasture grass.

Our chickens are also rotated through the pastures, where they consume the grass, bugs, and worms. They are also given a supplemental organic, corn-free, and soy-free chicken feed.

Forest-Raised Pork

Our pigs are raised in the forest with plentiful access to fresh air, sunshine, and shade. They rotate around the forest to root around to prevent brush and allow diverse grasses to grow back, providing lush silvopasture.


PUFAs (polyunsaturated fatty acids) are fats found in liquid oils such as corn, soy, safflower, sunflower, flaxseed, sesame, and peanut, which can impact the nutritional profile of the meat they produce. According to many scientists and nutritionists, including Dr. Enig, consumption of excess polyunsaturated fats are linked to inflammation, cell aging, obesity, and hormonal imbalances,including hypothyroidism and insulin resistance (diabetes). [2] 

Because our animals are never fed corn and soy feed, we ensure that our products are as Low-PUFA as possible.

When you choose our products, you can be confident that you are making a health-conscious and environmentally responsible choice that supports both your well-being and sustainable farming practices.

100% Grass-Fed Beef

Our cattle are 100% grass-fed and finished. They graze the pastures and consume high-quality forage from the moment they are weaned from their mothers and are never supplemented with grains. This results in flavorful beef that contains more nutrients and healthy fats such as omega-3. [1]

No Corn and Soy

Our animals never consume corn or soy as part of their diet. This commitment to producing corn and soy-free goods reflects our dedication to providing high-quality, wholesome, and alternative food options to our customers.

When you choose Apsey Farms products, you are not only selecting meat that is free from these common allergens but also supporting a farming philosophy that prioritizes nutrition, taste, and environmental responsibility.

No Vaccines

You have options when it comes to the use of vaccines in our livestock. We offer both traditional beef, pork, and chicken with no vaccines and a specialized product, Wagyu-Angus, which does receive vaccinations as part of a comprehensive health management program. Our goal is to provide our customers with choice, transparency, and access to the highest-quality meat products, whether they prefer traditional or premium options.

We understand that consumers today are more concerned than ever about the use of antibiotics, harmful additives, and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in food production.
