First Light accredited Certified Humane

Certified Humane® is a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the lives of farm animals in food production from birth through slaughter. Their goal is to drive consumer demand for kinder and more responsible farm animal practices. We are proud at First Light to have met and exceeded the rigorous standards set forth to become Certified Humane.

“At First Light we pride ourselves on doing things the right way. When we made the decision to raise Wagyu cattle on pasture for 100% of their lives, without the use of antibiotics, hormones or GMO feed, everyone told us we were crazy – it couldn’t be done. Well guess what, it turns out Wagyu can be raised without cutting any corners and the result is something truly special. We made the decision to partner with Certified Humane, not because we needed advice on raising cattle on grass, but because we wanted independent validation from a group of people who shared our moral compass. The partnership is new but the shared values are timeless.” – Jason Ross, Co-Founder of First Light
