Hip Chick Farms is proud to partner with the Global Animal Partnership (GAP) to promote a higher welfare for animals in agriculture. The GAP program recognizes producers committed to better animal welfare using a 5 Step Rating System. Each step has it’s own requirements and all certified producers are audited by authorized, third party companies.
We believe in building a kinder and more transparent system for farm animals and that is why all of our chicken on The Kitchen menu is Global Animal Partnership (GAP) Step 3 certified, which is a recognized animal welfare certification by REAL Certified and ASPCA® Shop With Your Heart program. We also support GAP in improving its standards for animals and will continue to procure chicken from GAP-certified farmers as they implement higher on-farm standards by 2024 as well as require CAS processing, which is a system that is widely considered more humane.
