At Dickson’s, we search out farms doing something a little differently, whose value doesn’t easily fit into the big business mold. Heritage breed, grass-fed or organic? These are our farms. We select them based on quality, commitment to sustainable land use, and humane handling practices.
We only work with farmers who take pride in their product and want their name, before ours, on each package. We believe the farmer is a far more important part of this system than we are.
All our farms must meet the following baseline criteria :
- The entire supply chain (farm to slaughterhouse to point-of-sale) must be no more than 400 miles long.
- Animal based feeds, prophylactic antibiotics or added hormones are not administered at any point of the animal’s life.
- The animals from which our meat comes must spend their life on the farm – no CAFO (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations) or feedlots.
