Meet a Family Behind the Bacon

Family, farming, and animal care — the top priorities for the McClure family. Father and son, Terry and Ryan McClure, talk about how these beliefs weave through their lives as pig farmers. 

"Our greatest compliment really is being taken for granted," Terry said, "because the expectation is going to be good, wholesome, great-tasting food every time, and that's our commitment."

Alongside Terry and Ryan is the seventh generation of pig farmers, showing that the farm and family really are the same. "The amount of hours spent on the farm requires your family next to you," Ryan said.
