Incredible healthy protein starts at the farm

Grandpa, father, and pig farmer Tom Graham shares how he and his family work together to provide safe, healthy protein for your plate.


“It is not about a paycheck. It is about providing for the community. We are providing food, “ Tom passionately shares.

Providing safe, wholesome pork starts at the farm. Tom opens his barn doors and invites you inside. As a multi-generation farm family, they strive to take the utmost care for the pigs.

How we raise pigs on the farm may vary, but advanced technology and innovation assist families like the Grahams to raise pork ethically, sustainably, and responsibly.
