Organic Prairie follows a seven-step “safety net,” a rigorous code of conduct that ensures their meat is as healthy and wholesome as possible. This includes testing all Organic Prairie meat for bacteria before it leaves their processing facilities.
The farmers who supply Organic Prairie were among the nation’s first to produce meat without the use of antibiotics, synthetic hormones, or pesticides. They insisted on third-party organic meat certification long before federal organic standards were established and were the first in the industry to ban animal by-products from their cattle’s diet. They played a vital role in shaping federal organic meat certification standards — the strictest in the industry.
