Why Do We Love USDA Inspections?

We are excited to share our thoughts about United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) certification in our food division at MacFarlane Pheasants, Inc. and our processing plant, Twin Cities Pack! Our pheasant food products have always been state certified, but markets outside the United States require USDA certification, and it has been our goal to […]
