Certified Natural New York, LLC

"We need other family farms to help produce high quality food that is safe for the consumer, while fostering a sustainable relationship between farmers, animals, the environment, and the local community."

Certified Natural New York, LLC is a certification company. CNNY has developed specific protocols for food safety, animal welfare, and food quality. CNNY ensures your feeds are free from antibiotics, added growth promotants, and animal byproducts. We have aligned ourselves with the Animal Welfare Institute to audit farms once a year. Your family farm will be checked for animal care and humane treatment based on Animal Welfare Institute protocols. The program is involved with many meat scientists and tasting panels. CNNY has specific guidelines to follow. We routinely sample your products for color, flavor, marbling, p.h., and moisture. We also review with the processor and transporter and ensure they are following our program to achieve top quality. Creating a program this complete opens many marketing doors. We can approach added value retailers and assure them our food is safe and delicious.

Stephen Winkler (owner/operator of CNNY, LLC) needs a network of high quality farmers to keep up with increasing demand for high quality meat across the Northeast.

"I want to get the word out of how wonderful and safe the meats produced in New York are. I never thought the demand for such a product would be so high. We need other family farms to help us produce high quality food that is safe for the consumer, while fostering a sustainable relationship between farmers, animals, the environment, and the local community."
