When you see meet that is labeled as organic, it refers to the ecological method of agricultural production that respects the natural environment. Organic practices focus on helping to enhance the vitality of the soil, promoting animal welfare, preserving biodiversity, and preserving the ecological integrity of the environment. Organic farming practices mean that there are no synthetic fertilizers, synthetic pesticides or genetically modified organisms permitted in the organic product. Organic food items along with the livestock feed fed to the animals are regulated and must meet all requirements to label themselves as organic products. When something is certified as organic, this is the consumers guarantee that all of the food products meet all of the requirements as set out by both the Canadian and American certification bodies, and the food products can be traced and inspected to confirm that this is true. Free range food products are unregulated food labels, and this term means that the animals are uncaged, usually with access to the outdoors. The amount of time the animals are allowed outside can vary widely. Free run is also a term used for cageless housing, but it does not necessarily mean that the animals are housed outside. Grain fed is a term that means the animals are fed grain which is the conventional standard in animal production and allows the animals to gain weight faster than if they were grass fed. Grass fed is a term that refers to the livestock that has been raised on pasture and not confined to a feedlot or grain fed system. Grass fed, take longer to mature, and the meat is typically more favorable.

This is a fact that means at no stage of the animals life were they fed grain. The term natural means that the product is grown or raised in a more environmentally sensitive way, without the harsh or synthetic chemicals. This term is however not regulated and can be used for a wide variety of products, but can be misleading as there are no guidelines, as to what they are referring to. By purchasing chicken that is either free range or organic, not only are you getting a better food product, but you are contributing to a better life for the animals.
