Drager Farms got accepted into the Keystone 10 Million Trees Partnership! We will be planting trees on May 4th and are looking for able-bodied volunteers to help plant about 400 trees around the property. This is hard physical labor but if we all work together, we should be done in no time! And you’ll definitely sleep well that night. [¡– BONUS –!]
The trees will serve as a riparian buffer, part of a concerted statewide effort to keep Pennsylvania waters clean. The trees will also provide some welcome shade for the cows who live here.
The tree planting event is scheduled to begin at 9am and we will work until noon.
— Drager Farms, LLC in Marietta, PA, uses sustainable agriculture methods to produce Certified Grassfed by AGW beef —
MARIETTA, PA (AUGUST 30, 2016)–Drager Farms, LLC is the first farming business in Pennsylvania to be Certified Grassfed by A Greener World (AGW). This is the only certification and logo in the U.S. and Canada that guarantees food products come from animals fed a 100 percent grass and forage diet, raised outdoors on pasture or range for their entire lives, and managed according to Certified AWA’s leading welfare and environmental standards on an independent family farm. While other grassfed labels exist, none has fully met consumer expectations when it comes to a grassfed and forage diet, environmental management, and farm animal welfare–until now. Read more
We are so happy to announce that Drager Farms has officially been accepted by the Animal Welfare Approved program! That means our cows are cared for humanely throughout their entire life cycle. We know that happy cows are better for everyone!
