Humane Table

The Humane Table was created to celebrate food from animals that have been ethically raised according to standards that are based in science and best practices. The Humane Table concept is founded on the premise that safe and wholesome meat, poultry, dairy and eggs can be provided by animals raised humanely according to standards based on the Five Freedoms of Animal Welfare.

The Five Freedoms espouse that an animal be healthy, comfortable, well nourished, safe, able to express normal behavior, and not be suffering from unpleasant states such as pain, fear and distress. American Humane Association (AHA) created its farm animal welfare standards with animal science professionals, veterinarians, and practitioners.

Choosing certified humanely raised food is not only the right thing to do for animals, it’s the right thing to do for people.

The Humane Table Chefs are a group of dedicated culinary masters who have declared their support and preference for ethically raised meat, poultry, dairy and eggs products. They believe that the extra care the certified farmers and ranchers have taken to ensure a higher degree of welfare for their animals will result in high quality food they can buy, cook, and serve.

We invite you to support these exemplary chefs and their restaurants by enjoying their distinctive offerings. The Humane Table brings great food together with ethical values.
