Raise healthy & happy animals
Our hogs, cattle, chickens, and turkeys are free to behave the way nature intended –– like animals. They’re able to root, roam, and rummage, and are never caged, crated, or inhumanely confined.
They’re fed an all-vegetarian diet, given zero antibiotics, growth enhancers, or added hormones, and get to live their lives without undue stress or agitation. In other words, they’re happier, which results in healthier, more flavorful, and better-quality meat, according to studies.
Expand access to great quality food
We want to make great quality food available to everyone. We believe it’s vitally important to fuel bodies with tasty, good-for-you foods that have no added hormones, antibiotics, or growth enhancers.
Be honest, transparent and accountable
Our entire supply chain is transparent so you can trace your food back to the community of farmers from which it came. By openly connecting the dots between farm and table, we hold ourselves accountable to you and to one another.
Support family farms and ranches
We work with farmers and ranchers who care for their animals and land the old-fashioned way –– with genuine respect, appreciation, and sense of responsibility.
We believe it’s our job to support them every way possible. That’s why we pay better than market rate. By doing so, we not only build meaningful relationships with people who share our values, we create an economic model that makes sustainable farming a more attractive and financially viable business to pursue.
Practice environmental stewardship
We’re committed to being good caretakers of air, water, and land. Our farmers practice integrated, holistic farming that plans and manages for land stewardship.
For example, they reduce their waste stream by turning farming by-products into compost that feeds nutrients back into the soil. Our cattle ranchers apply land-management practices that promote animal health and protect delicate rangeland ecosystems.
Create great community with great food
Here at True Story, we love great food and how it brings families and friends together. There’s nothing like connecting around a table of delicious, good-for-you food to make the world a happier place.
