Pastured Poultry Standards

In 2024, American Grassfed Association (AGA) in partnership with APPPA will publish standards for pasture raised layers and pasture raised meat birds.

These voluntary standards will be the first third party certification that requires the birds to live on pasture for a majority of their lives. using mobile shelters. It sets a high bar that matches the spirit of the 30 year history of the modern pastured poultry movement.
