Glossary Intro

Here is a guide to terms relating to farming practices, animal husbandry, and food processing. Many of these terms do not have legal definitions and may mean different things to different people. By shopping at farmers markets, you can talk to the people who produce your food. We encourage you to ask sellers about their practices.
