Indicates the animal was raised on a pasture and that it ate grasses and food found in a
pasture, rather than being fattened on grain in a feedlot or barn. Pasturing
livestock and poultry is a traditional farming technique that allows animals to
be raised in a humane, ecologically sustainable manner. This is basically the
same as grass-fed, though the term pasture-raised indicates more clearly that
the animal was raised outdoors on pasture.
