Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW is the leading food label for animal welfare and pasture-based farming. All standards, policies and procedures are publicly available, and AGW is proud to hold ISO 17065 accreditation, demonstrating the highest level of transparency and accountability. Participation in AGW’s certification programmes is voluntary.
Farmers in the program agree to a minimum of one visit a year from AGW staff or agents, with the possibility of additional visits if deemed necessary, to confirm compliance with the standards during various seasons and to allow observation of animals in different phases of life. Participation in the programme is on an annual basis and must be renewed each year. Before applying, you should review the Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW and/or Certified Grassfed by AGW standards for the species in question to make sure you believe they are consistent with your farming practices and values. Please do not apply unless you have the animals in question currently on your farm.
If you have any questions about the application below, get in touch and we’ll be glad to help. We look forward to working with you!
