Pastured - Raised,
Free Range or Organic ???
"Free Range" are not the same as
Pastured Animals. Unlike Pastured
Animals, Free Range animals may not
have access fresh grass and sunshine.
In fact, according to the Food Safety
and Inspection Service of the US
Dept. of Agriculture, the only
qualifications for "free range or free
roaming" is that the producers must
demonstrate to the Agency that the
animals are allowed access to the
outside. In other words, if an animal
has 'access' to the outdoors (for as
little as 5 minutes a day) even if it
never actually goes out, or goes onto
a concrete slab, it can still be labeled
Animals that are labeled "Organic"
are also generally raised in a factory
house or barn setting. This just
means that they are being fed
organically raised feed which is usually
loaded with fillers. Again, they never
really see fresh grass, fresh air, fresh
bugs or sunshine.
