Some farmers are looking for ways to share information about how they treat their animals with their customers. To do that, many turn to American Humane's Farm Program. In this second episode of Behind the Label with American Humane, president and CEO Robin Ganzert and director of Farm Program Operations Haley Grimes walk listeners through the logistics of the certification process that results in a farm achieving American Humane Certified status. They discuss how producers work with the organization to meet the standards, the audits each farm undergoes, and more. In the next few episodes, we'll dig deeper into American Humane's scientific standards for chickens and how Springer Mountain Farms applies those standards.

In March, HRN began producing all of our 35 weekly shows from our homes all around the country. It was hard work stepping away from our little recording studio, but we know that you rely on HRN to share resources and important stories from the world of food each week. It’s been a tough year for all of us, but right now HRN is asking for your help. Every dollar that listeners give to HRN provides essential support to keep our mics on. We've got some fresh new thank you gifts available, like our limited edition bandanas.
