Pasture for Life

Post by debra wiltshire »

Hello...Has anyone come across or had any dealings with Pasture for life? Below was taken from their Facebook page. Recommended today to have a look...

The 'Pasture for Life' certification mark is the UK's only accreditation for 100% grass-fed meat and dairy produce.

It is operated by the Pasture-Fed Livestock Association which is a non-profit community interest company that brings together growing numbers of British farmers and butchers selling high welfare produce that is good for the environment and healthy for consumers.

Yes, rather a restrictive organisation that makes trade difficult - fine if you're rearing and finishing your own stock but there aren't many Dexter breeders in the scheme and even fewer selling stock. I steered clear of it for that reason, and the fact that the 'pasture' standards also includes brassicas and root crops. Not my idea of grassfed.

Looks to be a well set out website, cant see why something similar couldn't be run by the dexter society. would be an improvement on the current beef producers map page
