Committed to People, Pigs & the Planet

Committed to Sustainability

North Carolina farmers work hard to follow the highest quality safety and health standards while protecting and promoting animal well-being and safeguarding our natural resources.

We’re focused on contributing to a better quality of life in our communities, from healthy pigs and our environmental impact to the mouths we feed and the jobs we create.

Nourishing North Carolina

Cooking with pork is a way to provide your family with sustainable nutrition through heart-healthy protein. Pork is a complete source of protein and contains vitamins, minerals, and amino acids to help support the body’s immune system and help maintain healthy red blood cells.
