Why Your Dinner Matters: The Solutions in Your Purchasing Decisions

Join us on May 27th, 2021 at 7:30pm ET for a virtual event featuring Carrie Balkcom, the Executive Director of American Grassfed Association, Sherri Dugger, the Executive Director of Socially Responsible Agriculture Project, Carrie Richards of AGA certified Richards Grassfed Beef, and Dr. Grobbel of Grobbel Environmental. The panelists will be discussing the problems with our current industrialized food system, how we can find solutions on our own plate, and how the right policies can help drive meaningful change in our food system.

OUR MISSION

From the farm to the marketplace and in government policy, we support, advocate, and promote American grassfed and pasture-based farms and ranches.

We do so by:

  • Maintaining a credible, transparent national standard for animals humanely raised on pasture
  • Partnering and collaborating to support rural economies

WHAT WE DO

Certification program

Our certification program requires producers to meet a stringent set of standards and pass an annual third-party, on-farm inspection to become approved AGA Certified producers. To learn more, visit our certification page.

Market support

We provide AGA certified producers with the AGA logo, trademark, service mark and/or design mark for use on labels and other marketing materials.

Education

Through conferences, ranch days, publications and other outreach efforts, AGA works with producers, chefs, and consumers to bridge the gap between pasture and table.

Policy

AGA works directly with legislators and the USDA in conjunction with other likeminded organizations to establish farm policy that supports American grassfed producers and family farms.

Partnerships

AGA forms alliances with other organizations that share our values in the grassfed food production and regenerative agriculture movements to give a voice to American grassfed ruminant, dairy and pastured pork producers.
