Our standard of animal husbandry has focused on these core principles since 1997, when our founding farm was established:
AAs our product line expanded into other species beyond Ostrich, we learned that what is suitable and sustainable for raising Ostrich does not always correlate to other animals. Our standards grew with this knowledge.
The core of our standards remains, but we account for some modifications that are suitable for specific species. For example: raising ducks on open pasture is not an effective means of producing high quality, consistent product year-round. It also does not afford the animals the protection they deserve from harsh weather elements and predators.
Fossil Farms' partnerships with farms and ranchers requires extensive research in animal raising practices and we visit each of our producers to ensure that our standards are maintained. We, also, continually develop and enhance these standards to improve the sustainability, environmental impact and quality of our products.
