Animal Welfare

How are the animals raised for our family brand products treated?

All animals used to make our products are raised humanely on small family farms that exemplify the same values as Lou’s Naturals; range free and stress free. Animals are given indoor and outdoor access, weather permitting.

What are the animals that are raised for our products fed?

The animals are fed an all natural vegetarian diet. The animals raised specifically for the Wellshire brand & for grass-fed products eat wild and planted grasses, as well as alfalfa. The animals always have access to clean, fresh drinking water. There are no animal by-products, hormones or antibiotics in their diet. It is Wellshire's policy that the animals used in our products are never administered antibiotics.

How are the animals used in our Wellshire products harvested?

The comfort of the animals, both during their time spent on the farm and during harvesting, is a priority for Wellshire and our partners. It is in the best interest of the harvesting facilities to continue ensuring the animals raised for the family of brand products remain relaxed because a stressed animal affects the quality of the meat. The animals raised for the family of brand products are continually under the regulatory oversight of the USDA from the time they leave the farm through harvest.

What kind of quality control does Wellshire have in place for their family of brands?

Wellshire has an internal Quality Assurance Department, with representatives continuously making visits to our vendor-partner facilities, to ensure integrity every step of the way. Independent third party auditors also monitor all aspects of operations at the farms, harvesting facilities and processors that make up Wellshire's operations. This offers consumers added assurance that Wellshire embodies excellence and a deep commitment to quality - from farm to fork.
