The path from prairie to plate, explained
The Open Prairie Natural Meats team is proud to lay our entire process out in the open with our Trusted Path™ traceability program. It’s our way of ensuring we stay transparent with customers like you — always.
Raising animals responsibly
From the time animals are born, they’re raised with both our values and your values in mind. That means no added hormones or growth promotants, ample space for natural behavior and well-trained independent partners who know how to treat animals compassionately and humanely.
The proof is in the paperwork
Throughout the animals’ lives, farmers and ranchers maintain and share detailed records that document the animals’ health, welfare and living conditions.
Third-party auditors visit farms and ranches to ensure animal welfare standards and production processes are being met throughout the journey.
Humane harvesting practices
Throughout the production process, we have a robust and humane handling program in place to make sure procedures are followed and continually identify areas for improvement.
Trust is in our DNA
We use DNA sampling throughout multiple stages of our process to facilitate our ability to trace each animal back to their origin and confirm they were raised under our strict animal welfare principles.
Meat you can feel good about purchasing
We think treating animals with respect, dignity and compassion makes for a better end result. When our beef and pork arrive in stores, you know exactly where it came from and how it was raised.
Wholesome beef and pork.
