At least 50% of the feed must be produced on the farm itself or by a NATURLAND authorised cooperation partner. Exceptions are admissible for farms with a small number of animals (up to 10 DU). (NL standards on production, Part B.II.2.Feeding)


The NATURLAND standard is similar but slightly more detailed. The EU Regulation 2092/91 requires that 50% of the diet must be home-grown feed for herbivores only. If this is not possible, the feed can be provided by another organic farm as a cooperation partner. All kind of animals shall be fed with home-grown organic feed, if possible.
