Safe Feed Safe Food
We are proud to have earned the Safe Feed/Safe Food Certification by the American Feed Industry Association.
The mission of the Safe Feed/Safe Food Certification Program is to establish and promote generally accepted food safety guidelines designed to ensure continuous improvement in the delivery of a safe and wholesome feed supply for the growth and care of animals...
Springer Mountain Farms recognizes that healthy animals need a safe, wholesome food supply. Thatís why our chickens are fed a pesticide free, vegetarian diet of corn and soybean without the use of antibiotics, growth stimulants or hormones, or animal by-products. 100% of the corn and soybean that we use is grown right here in the United States. We do not import any ingredients from other countries. The corn and soybean meal is extensively tested on-site in our USDA Certified laboratory not only for nutrient value, energy, protein, minerals, and amino acids, but also for numerous quality standards such as molds, moisture, grade of product, and pesticide contamination. We are one of the few poultry producers who can and do test ingredients this extensively. We staff dedicated quality assurance specialists that inspect each incoming load of corn and soybean meal and each load of finished feed as it goes out to the farms as well. Our feed mill was the first feed mill in the world to earn the Safe Feed Safe Food certification from the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA). Because of these numerous quality checks, we exceed the standards for organic feeds.
We are opposed to the use of GMOs, and make every effort to seek out and purchase the corn and soybean to make our feed from U.S. non-GMO suppliers. Unfortunately, 94% of soybean and 93% of corn planted in the U.S. is now genetically engineered according to the USDA National Agriculture Statistics Service, making it impossible for us to make a 100% GMO-free claim. Given these statistics, we feel that it would be almost impossible for any poultry producer who uses only American-grown grains to truthfully state that their feed is 100% GMO-free. As mentioned above, we are however one of the few poultry producers that can and do test every load of feed ingredient and every load of finished feed in our on-site USDA Certified lab.
