“We are thrilled to be recognized by HFAC and proud to have the Certified Humane® label on our Hart Dairy milk bottles,” said Tim Connell, Hart Dairy chief executive officer. “Their seal of approval is a testament to our passion to ensure a healthy living environment for our cows, as they graze free-range on green grass pastures 365 days a year. We truly believe the happiest cows produce the most pure, delicious milk for our customers.”

“We have seen Hart Dairy’s commitment to the animal welfare of their cows. Their own Grass 365 program is in total accord with the Certified Humane® standards and ensures the Hart Dairy cows have their emotional and physical needs met every day and are able to express natural behaviors throughout their lives,” said Mimi Stein, HFAC executive director.

Hart Dairy is the latest farm to join the Certified Humane® program, which requires farmers to adhere to HFAC’s Animal Care Standards and undergo third-party inspections to confirm compliance to be certain they:

  • Are fed nutritious diets without antibiotics, growth promoters and animal byproducts.
  • Receive proper shelter, resting areas and sufficient space to support natural behaviors.
