Anderson Hay & Grain Receives USDA Organic Certification to Offer Organic Timothy Hay for Small Pet Market – Yahoo Finance

One of the First U.S. Companies to Sell USDA Certified Organic Timothy Hay Under Sister Company, Andy by Anderson Hay
ELLENSBURG, WASH., June 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Anderson Hay & Grain (Anderson), the leading exporter of premium hay and straw products, specializing in Timothy and alfalfa hay and grass straw products, is expanding to offer U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) certified organic Timothy hay through its sister company, Andy by Anderson Hay, a new company that offers high-quality hay and all-natural products for rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas and other small pets.
“Small pet owners want to feed their pets the very best.  Many of our customers already consume organic food products and feed organic produce to their pets. As demand for organic food has grown rapidly, we asked ourselves why shouldn’t pets have the same access to high quality organic foods as their pet owners? We saw a need and are excited to now offer our high quality hay that is certified organic and an eco-friendly option for the small pet market,” said Mark Anderson, CEO of Anderson Hay & Grain and Andy by Anderson Hay (Andy).
Why Organic Hay Is Important?
Organic farming is more sustainable for the environment and produces hay that is good from the ground up through organic growing methods. USDA certified organic agriculture is grown and processed according to federal guidelines addressing soil quality, pest and weed control, use of additives, as well as agents certifying storage and handling practices at every step of the journey, from the farm to consumers’ doorsteps. Anderson received its USDA organic certification in September 2021. Certification by the USDA is considered the gold standard for organic products and represents the company’s commitment to quality and sustainability.
Anderson’s Timothy hay is grown and packaged in the state of Washington, in the Columbia Basin, and is sold by its sister company, Andy, combining their mission of bringing together fresh-off-the-farm natural hay and sustainable, organic growing methods. Andy offers USDA Organic Certified Timothy 1st cutting hay in a 7 and 15-pound box and Andy-Pak™ feeder boxes online at Amazon and
