Surfing Goat Dairy is first Hawaii farm to be certified humane


Congratulations to this well-respected goat farm on Maui. From today's Star-Bulletin story:

Surfing Goat Dairy on Maui now also has the distinction of becoming the first Hawaii-based producer to receive the Certified Humane Raised and Handled label from Virginia-based nonprofit group Humane Farm Animal Care.

To qualify for the label, farms must meet precise standards for the treatment of farm animals, which include a nutritious diet without antibiotics or hormones, adequate shelter, resting areas, and sufficient space to support natural behaviors.

For those of us on Oahu, the article indicates that Whole Foods will carry Surfing Goat products. So just a little more patience please...
