The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Process Verified Program provides companies that supply agricultural products or services the opportunity to assure customers of their ability to provide consistent quality products or services. (Source: http://processverified.usda.gov)
Shady Brook Farms® brand developed, and submitted to the USDA, our requirements for raising turkeys that exceed all current government and industry standards. The USDA then acts as a third-party verification system by auditing and validating that Shady Brook Farms® brand turkeys are raised and handled following the requirements we submitted.
“In the end, it’s about being able to trust that our products achieve the highest standards every time.”
What process verification means for you
The USDA verified program process means Shady Brook Farms® brand turkeys are:
- Proudly raised without growth-promoting antibiotics. Antibiotics responsibly used only when needed for treatment & prevention of illness.
- Responsibly raised by independent farmers who are trained on animal handling practices.
Since May 2015, all Shady Brook Farms® turkey products meet these USDA Process Verified Program standards. We call it “turkey with a purpose.” It means you’re buying turkey you can trust.
