USDA Organic

SVO prides itself in producing the highest quality organic free range chicken. USDA Organic food products have met the U.S. Federal requirements for inspection and certification as defined for the “USDA Organic” label. Though the federal definition of “organic” is very complex, one of the most important regulations is that animals must be fed a 100% organic, all-vegetable diet. In addition, our poultry is given:

  • NO antibiotics
  • NO use of animal by-products
  • NO grains grown with chemical fertilizers
  • NO synthetic amino acids
  • NO genetically modified organisms (GMOs)
  • NO pesticide treated grains
  • NO steroids.
  •  

    In short, we sell chicken the way it supposed be...Chicken and nothing else!
