In the busy aisles of supermarkets and the sizzling sounds of backyard grills, we happily greet our friends and celebrate with shared meals. However, as we exchange stories, the story of our food from pasture to plate often remains a mystery.

USDA APPROVES NEW QUALIFICATIONS FOR VOLUNTARY “PRODUCT OF USA” LABEL TO PROVIDE CONSUMER PROTECTION

The USDA has issued a final rule regarding the use of the “Product of USA” or “Made in the USA” label claim on meat, poultry, and egg products. These labels now only apply to products from animals born, raised, slaughtered, and processed in the United States.

UNVEILING “PRODUCT OF USA” LABELS

At Summerfield Farms, transparency isn’t just a trend; it’s our way of life. With the recent USDA ruling reshaping the landscape of meat labeling, we stand tall, proud, and unwavering in our commitment to honesty and integrity.

The USDA’s latest regulations have defined what it means for meat to bear the coveted “Product of USA” label. This is a significant development for consumers who seek transparency in their food choices. For us, it reinforces the values that we have always upheld.

WHY TRANSPARENCY MATTERS:

Transparency isn’t merely a buzzword; it’s a cornerstone of informed decision-making. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack aptly stated, “This final rule will ensure that when consumers see ‘Product of USA,’ they can trust the authenticity of that label and know that every step involved, from birth to processing, was done here in America.”1 At Summerfield Farms, this principle has always been at the core of our values, guiding our practices since day one.

THE POWER OF CHOICE: 

As the USDA shines a spotlight on the origin of our food, we welcome scrutiny with open arms. For us, there’s no need to scramble to meet new standards or revise our practices. Our commitment to 100% grass-fed and grass-finished beef, “Born And Grazed in The USA®”, has always been non-negotiable. According to recent data, 75-80% of grass-fed beef sold in the United States is raised abroad, underscoring the significance of our domestic sourcing. When you choose our beef, you’re investing in transparency, traceability, and trust.2
