Animal Welfare Approved (AWA) is an independent, non- profit organization that recognizes farms for maintaining the highest animal welfare and environmental standards.

It’s one thing for us to say we manage our farm with special attention to our animals and land, but it’s another thing to have an independent organization determine the same.  We undergo thorough yearly audits to maintain our status as an Animal Welfare Approved dairy farm.

We are proud to say we are the only dairy farm in Ohio with this designation. We underwent this voluntary, yet involved application and audit to support our claims that we are managing our farm differently than others.  At Creekside Farm we strive to produce products in a way that prioritizes the wellbeing of the animals, the community and the land and the AWA endorsement is just one more testament to that commitment.
