Learn more about Miller Livestock Company, one of our recent Food Alliance Certified farms

Posted by at Mar 29, 2012 08:40 AM |
Miller Livestock is the first farm in Ohio to achieve the esteemed Food Alliance certification, and is only the 10th farm in the Mid-Atlantic region to receive the certification.

A few weeks ago, we welcomed Miller Livestock Company of Trumbull County, Ohio, to the growing roster of farms and businesses that are choosing Food Alliance Certification.

Located on 140 acres in northern Trumbull County, Ohio, Miller Livestock has been owned and operated by Melissa & Aaron Miller since 1986. They have raised pastured livestock since 1999, including pork, lamb, poultry and beef.

The Millers sought certification to validate their sustainability practices and address increasing consumer concerns with how food is produced. They credit foodservice provider, Bon Appétit Management Company (BAMCO) for leading them to Food Alliance certification.

"We are thrilled to be the first Food Alliance Certified farm in Ohio," said Melissa Miller.

"We congratulate the Millers for their sincere commitment to sustainable agriculture," said Food Alliance's Executive Director, Scott Exo.  "And we applaud Bon Appétit and other companies who seek out and reward farmers like the Millers with their business.”

PASA Executive Director Brian Snyder said, “This certification gives farmers in the region a new tool to differentiate their products in the retail or food service setting, and gives food buyers a better means to distinguish marketing hype from the reality of on-farm production practices.  We are delighted the Millers have joined the growing group of forward thinking farmers.”
