Twenty years ago, American Humane embarked on a new journey – certifying farms and ranches for excellent animal welfare. Over the past two decades, we have witnessed tremendous programmatic growth as farmers have sought to elevate their standards and operations to better the lives of the animals in their care. Today, the American Humane CertifiedTM program improves the lives of some one billion animals annually.
We are incredibly proud of the work we do to help farm animals, but it is the outstanding farmers and the work they do every day to improve the lives of chickens, turkeys and pigs in their care, of who we are most proud. Our certified producers go above and beyond industry standards to do what’s right by the animals. For the past twenty years, Clover Sonoma, a dairy based in Petaluma, California, has been with American Humane every step of the way.
Clover Sonoma is no stranger to excellent animal welfare. As a third-generation family-owned dairy, their commitment to the animals in their care runs deep. American Humane values commitments from excellent farmers like Clover Sonoma because they push the industry, as a whole, forward.
American Humane and Clover Sonoma are calling on other dairies to improve their animal welfare standards. Consumers know that dairy products carrying the American Humane CertifiedTM label have met rigorous, science-based animal welfare standards.
To celebrate with us, watch this Clover Sonoma video commemorating the moment.
