-- Templeton Family Organics uses sustainable agriculture methods to earn Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW certification for their pasture-raised pigs --
GOFFSTOWN, NH (DECEMBER 5, 2017)--The pigs at Templeton Family Organics are now Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World (AGW). This certification and foodlabel lets consumers know these animals are raised outdoors on pasture or range in accordance with the highest animal welfare standards in the U.S. and Canada, using sustainable agriculture methods on an independent farm. Templeton Family Organics is the first farming business in Hillsborough County to become Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW for pigs. 

Like other Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW farmers across the country, Brian and Christine Templeton recognize the growing consumer interest in how animals are raised on farms. Managing animals outdoors on pasture or range has known benefits for animals, consumers and the environment.

The Templetons, along with four of their six children, own and operate 13-acre Templeton Family Organics, overlooking Goffstown. The farmers believe in pasture-based, sustainable production, which in their experience leads to healthy animals and high-quality pork products. They raise Landrace and Berkshire-cross breeds for their ability to forage on pasture and handle the variable weather conditions. The pigs have continuous access to pasture, with plenty of room to demonstrate natural behaviors like wallowing, grazing and rooting with their snouts, and are regularly moved to fresh ground to minimize the risk of parasites and disease.  
The Templetons chose to be Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW because it aligns with their philosophies of raising their animals according to high-welfare standards, and helps communicate their values and practices to their customers.

Christine Templeton of Templeton Family Organics, says:

"People should know that just because a pork product is labeled organic, it doesn't necessarily mean the pig ever saw a blade of grass. Our Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW label shows our customers that we really are farming the way we say we are, raising pigs outdoors on pasture according to the highest welfare standards."
Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW Program Director Andrew Gunther says,

"The accountability and integrity offered by Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW farmers like Brian and Christine are unmatched in food production. We're glad to have Templeton Family Organics in the AGW family."
Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW pork products from Templeton Family Organics are available at their self-service farm stand in Goffstown, as well as at the A Market in Manchester, NH. For more information, visit and find them on Facebook and Instagram. Alternatively, call 781-316-5067 or email

Big announcement! We are now Certified Animal Welfare Approved (AWA)!

We had decided that just because we say we are organic doesn't mean that our animals see the light of day, which can and does happen in the organic world (shocking I know!). We decided to take this one step further so you, the consumer, can be assured of the wonderful, happy and humane treatment of our pigs. If you have ever been here, you would have seen the happy pigs frolicking around in the pasture and playing in the mud. One of the biggest thing people say - besides how cute they are, is "I can't believe how friendly they are". So for those of you who haven't been here yet and haven't seen for yourself, you can be assured that our pork lived a very happy and natural life here which, by the way, comes out in the flavor!

Grateful for helping hands

We are very grateful to the Ouellette family who have on several occasions come by with their 6 children to offer a helping hand. In this picture the twins and younger kids moved a group of layer chicks from the main barn to the small hen house so that they can learn how to roost and get used to being in a hen house. While they were busy setting up the house, putting down bedding, setting up feeders, and waters, catching chicks and moving them, the big kids were out moving 175 bigger cornish cross chickens out to the field. When they were done, they came in and cleaned out the pens they were in! Talk about many hands making light work. We were done in record time. Thank you Ouellette family!

Here is another picture of a tremendous helping hand. Below is Wally helping me until the wee hours of the night putting labels on our various chicken cuts, fresh out of the processing plant. Together we labeled, weighed and packaged orders for our customers and put them back into our refrigerated van for delivery in the morning. Thank you Wally - you rock!

New Mobile Farm Stand & Partner Farms!

We were very warmly invited by ECCO Shoes in Londonderry to bring our products to them. We are there on Wednesdays from 11:30 - 1:30. Its a work in progress as the season ramps up but we decided to partner with our two favorite farms to provide more variety and exposure to the awesome organic farms right in our own area. We are stocking some beef products from STEVE NORMANTON GRASS-FED BEEF farm in Litchfield, NH. Orders for beef cuts can be made in advance and brought with us on our next delivery. We are also offering awesome dairy products from BENEDIKT DAIRY in Goffstown. We have raw milk (the real cream top deal!), yogurt, butter, fromage (cheese) - all in stock. Behind the scenes our partner farms are more than just products too. We support each other in buying feed in bulk, we share our equipment, transport livestock and products, share advice and so much more. Steve has also been an amazing mentor as we have embarked on new adventures. It is not easy to be a farming family in New Hampshire. So when you purchase local, not only are you reducing air emissions by trucking companies, purchasing healthy, flavorful food and supporting someone's local hard working farm, you are supporting the farming community who hold each other up! That is a grace! Thank you for your support!

Notice anything unusual besides our boar and sows in the background?
