Verde Farms works closely with farmers on a global level to raise cattle and sheep as nature intended. Our cattle and sheep are pasture-raised and 100% grass-fed and grass-finished. They are never given antibiotics, added hormones, grains like corn, or confined to industrial feedlots — unlike the conventional meat industry. Our organic programs raise the bar even further by avoiding the use of synthetic pesticides or fertilizers. These practices are not only healthier for the land, animal, and farmer, but they also help produce a better quality product.

Additionally, we are committed to a practice of not including older dairy cull cows or tropical breeds. While others may take shortcuts to get a product to market at the cheapest price, the priority at Verde Farms is to ensure the highest quality possible throughout the supply chain.

New Zealand

New Zealand is world-renowned for stunning landscapes as highlighted in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Trilogy. Bubbling brooks intersect with gentle waterfalls; snow-capped peaks cast shadows over lush forest valleys, and ancient glaciers — frozen in time — cascade almost to the sea.

Along this landscape, farmers carry on the centuries-old tradition of raising grass-fed cattle and sheep, producing both wool and meat. Consumers are increasingly valuing the unique product that New Zealand offers.
