As the spring months unfold and the days grow longer, many families are rejoicing at warmer weather, green leaves and the possibility of new beginnings. Mass vaccinations are underway and we are finally close to closing the chapter of coronavirus and returning to normal.
Throughout the past year, America’s farmers and ranchers have been essential to weathering this pandemic. Grocery store shelves have remained laden with nutritious, delicious and affordable food. Producers across the country have stepped up to the plate, modifying their protocols and policies while remaining committed to their employees and communities. American Humane has been proud to see certified producers provide support to local schools and foodbanks while adding protections for their workers and coordinating vaccine rollout.
The long days of spring and summer in 2021 will undoubtedly be filled with friends, families and neighbors gathering around dinner tables, grills and porches – celebrating the joy of newfound community.
American Humane is encouraging families to put humanely raised food front and center of their celebrations – supporting the farmers and ranchers who go above and beyond to do right by the animals in their care.
Thank you for your own dedication to humane farming, helping to put food on the nation’s tables and doing it in a way that is good for both animals and people. If you are not already a member of the American Humane Certified™ family, my colleagues here would enjoy the opportunity to visit with you and share more about our trusted, collaborative approach to achieving the certification that increasing numbers of consumers feel is so important to living a healthy, sustainable and humane lifestyle.
All my best,
Robin R. Ganzert, Ph.D.
