Coleman Natural Goes Beyond the USDA Requirements for a “Natural” Label
At Coleman Natural Foods, natural is in our name for a reason. We ensure that farmers adhere to our standards and protocols, which include crate-free raising practices, vegetarian-fed, and never using antibiotics or growth promotants.
We Focus on 5 Important Areas of Animal Care
Our family farms must meet or exceed more than 200 science-based humane animal care standards. At Coleman Natural Foods we go above and beyond to provide nurturing, low-stress environments for our livestock.
Diet & HydrationWe guarantee fresh water access, carefully planned diets, and equal food distribution for our livestock's health and happiness.
EnvironmentOur animals’ environments are designed to allow them to move around freely during gestation, farrowing, and weaning stages.
Management & CareThe farmers we work with are thoroughly trained, skilled, and competent in the daily care and animal welfare of their livestock.
Health & SafetyOur animals’ housing environment must be conducive to good health. All farmers must develop a health plan in consultation with their veterinarians.
TransportationAnimal transport systems are designed to ensure livestock do not experience unnecessary distress or discomfort.
What Does Natural Mean?
The USDA defines a product as natural if it contains no artificial ingredients or added colors and is only minimally processed. At Coleman Natural Foods, we take it a step further.
Coleman Natural Foods is one of the largest companies to source Crate Free hogs, which means sows are able to interact naturally in community housing and nurture their piglets.
American Humane Certified Pork
Our hog farmers must meet or exceed more than 200 science-based humane animal care standards. The certification is based on the Five Freedoms, a globally accepted measure of animal care that goes beyond the basics of food, water, shelter and health to include freedom from distress and the freedom to express normal behaviors.
