What Does Natural Mean?

The USDA defines a product as natural if it contains no artificial ingredients or added colors and is only minimally processed. At Coleman, we take it a step further.

We Focus on 6 Important Areas of Animal Care

Our family farms must meet or exceed more than 200 science-based humane animal care standards. At Coleman, we go above and beyond to provide nurturing, low-stress environments for our livestock.

Diet & Hydration

We make sure our livestock has access to fresh water. Specific diets are designed to keep them healthy while promoting a positive state of well-being. Plus, there is no fighting over food - every animal gets its fair share.


Our animal’s environments are designed to protect them from discomfort, fear and distress, while allowing them to move around freely during the gestation, farrowing and weaning stages.

Management & Care

A high degree of caring and responsible management is what ensures good animal health. The farmers we work with are thoroughly trained, skilled and competent in the daily care and animal welfare of their pigs.

Health & Safety

Our pigs’ housing environment must be conducive to good health. All farmers must develop a health plan in consultation with their veterinarians.


Animal transport systems are designed and managed to ensure livestock do not experience unnecessary distress or discomfort.

Raised in the USA

We choose independent family farmers that adhere to the Coleman standards to work with us to bring our customers the highest quality products.

A Better Eating Experience

Heritage Duroc Pork

We prioritize humane practices and high-quality feed for our Duroc pigs. This commitment promotes their well-being and translates directly to tastier, more flavorful pork.

Natural Movement

Crate Free

Coleman is one of the largest companies to source Crate Free hogs, which means sows are able to interact naturally in community housing and nurture their piglets.

Humane Animal Care

American Humane Certified Pork

Our hog farmers must meet or exceed more than 200 science-based humane animal care standards. The certification is based on the Five Freedoms, a globally accepted measure of animal care that goes beyond the basics of food, water, shelter and health to include freedom from distress and the freedom to express normal behaviors.

What is Natural to Us?

“Natural to us is based on what we believe. We didn’t get into the business based on some market data that said ‘you should do this because you’ll make a lot of money.”
