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 organic chicken 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. Furthermore, we are working on obtaining GAP certification for our antibiotic-free chicken and turkey product lines too. By 2024 or before, all of our poultry products will be GAP certified and we will require that all chickens be processed using CAS, which is a system that is widely considered more humane.
