Our Story  / Our Story

Here at Harvestland, we know how important it is to bring fresh, wholesome food to your table. With the HARVESTLAND® brand, you can feel good about the food you serve your family because we believe that all families deserve to eat well.

You see, we’re food lovers, with an appreciation for healthy, wholesome food. We longed for more natural choices and a more authentic connection to our food. But we also understood the challenges of managing a family budget. Out of that desire, the HARVESTLAND® brand was born in the rich farmland of western Kentucky. We joined with select farm families who shared our vision. Together, we abandoned the common practices of administering antibiotics to livestock and adding animal by-products to feed.

We've since grown to include no-antibiotics-ever chicken, turkey and pork, and USDA-certified organic chicken. And while our operations are now in more states, we still work with select farm families who understand that respect for animals and the land goes hand-in-hand with healthy eating.

We invite you to taste the HARVESTLAND® difference for yourself.

HARVESTLAND® No-Antibiotics-Ever Chicken
This is how our brand started: chickens raised on family farms with very strict USDA Process Verified programs. The distinctive USDA seal on our package ensures our chickens are USDA Process Verified for:

  • No Antibiotics Ever
  • Fed All-Vegetarian Diet With No Animal By-Products
  • Humanely Raised
  • Raised Cage Free

With the HARVESTLAND® brand, the only thing you'll ever get is purely all-natural* chicken. We also know our chicken needs to taste good, too. So we pay attention to the little details, right down to the USDA Process Verified "Tenderness Guarantee" on our boneless, skinless chicken breasts.

HARVESTLAND® Turkey
Raised to the same high standards as our chicken, HARVESTLAND® turkey is fed an all-vegetarian diet with no antibiotics ever. And, of course, no hormones or steroids**.

HARVESTLAND® Pork
The latest addition to the HARVESTLAND® brand. Raised on family farms in the Midwest, fed an all-vegetarian diet with no animal by-products, our hogs never, ever receive antibiotics, hormones or steroids**.

HARVESTLAND® Organic Chicken
Our USDA-certified organic chicken represents our highest commitment to providing you the most-natural food. Raised without antibiotics on all-vegetarian diet of certified organic ingredients, our organic chickens live in a free-range environment or organic farms.

*Minimally processed. No artificial ingredients.
**Federal regulations prohibit the use of hormones or steroids in poultry.

USDA Process Verified - Companies with approved USDA Process Verified Programs are able to make marketing claims associated with their process verified points such as age, source, feeding practices, or other raising and processing claims and market themselves as "USDA Process Verified" with use of the "USDA Process Verified" shield and term.

To receive approval for a Process Verified Program, a company is obligated to:

  • Present a detailed program to USDA with support for why this program is appropriate and accurate
  • Implement the program successfully
  • Pass continual audits from the USDA AMS auditors
  • If new validated practices evolve in the future, the program must change to include these new practices
