For those of you who don’t know who I am, let me introduce myself.  My name is Adele Douglass and I am the founder and executive director of Humane Farm Animal Care and creator of the Certified Humane® program.

Welcome to our new website!

We developed this new website in response to feedback from all of you who have let us know what you wanted.  I hope these new features will make it easier to find the information you need.

Our home page is designed to be more “user friendly.”  There are sub-menus so you can more easily find what you are looking for.  You can put your mouse over a photo, or across the top bar and it will list what categories are there.

The newest feature on our website is our interactive searchable data base.  For those of you who want to find Certified Humane® products, just type in your zip code, or city and a list of places to buy them will come up along with a listing of what Certified Humane® products are sold in those stores.  It will make it easier for you to purchase certified products and let these retailers know that you support farming that is done right!  If there are not enough products that you want, go to our Take Action” page and print off a request to take with you to your local market asking your grocery manager to stock more products that are Certified Humane®.  If there are no stores in your area, check the “purchase online” section in the “Where to Buy” section. Many small farmers sell online all over the US.  Check those farms out and help them and help yourselves, too.

We have informaton about the program for producers, and for consumers.  Our standards and fact sheets are easier to find and available for download  If you want to: take action for animals,: we have material you can download right now to do that.   Our survey is still here, so if you haven’t taken our survey, please do, it gives us good information about what you want, how you found us and what the demographics are of people who care about humane foods.

And for the press we have an electronic press kit that is under the news section to make it easier for you to get the background information you need in one place.

This blog will be frequently be updated and will be used to discuss issues,and as a platform to make our consumers aware of issues they should know about.

The program has grown and couldn’t have grown without the help of all of you.  We rely on your input, and your support,so please let me know what you think of our new website.  And as always, if you have questions about the program, the standards or the organization, please continue to email me at info@certifiedhumane.org
