Quality of Life
American Homestead’s animals are raised cage-free because they put quality of life ahead of maximizing profits.
American Homestead practices non-GMO farming, meaning the plants aren’t sprayed with chemicals or genetically engineered to terminate.
The story behind our partnership
American Homestead is a group of 35 close-knit family farms located in a 15-mile radius from one another in Iowa. They value respect for the land, their animals, and their customer, promoting quality of life as well as their top-quality product. Their prized Hampshire hogs, selected for their prime heritage, are never given antibiotics or growth promotants. They are raised cage-free in open spaces where they can romp around, socialize, and take naps in the afternoon sun.
Through their sustainable farming methods like composting, water reclamation, and local feed sourcing, American Homestead farmers foster the land, helping ensure that the next generation inherits a habitable planet along with the wisdom of their predecessors. They only feed their animals non-GMO vegetables and grains, grown by neighboring families in nearby farms. This practice supports the local economy, could minimize carbon footprint, and could prevent customers from ingesting hidden and potentially dangerous pesticides.
At Raley’s, providing you pork that is raised humanely and sustainably is an old-fashioned, yet forward- thinking way of serving you. We believe that every kindness counts.
It’s tender pork, raised tenderly.
