A New Breed of Hog Farmer

Record #:
Mike Jones of Franklin County owns a small farm which raises free-range, natural, and humanely raised hogs. Jones began working with confinement hog farms, but says his conscience prevented him staying in that industry. Jones’ biggest challenge is raising enough hogs to make money while keeping them from damaging their environment. Jones also works as an extension specialist for NC A&T University and encourages other farmers to use sustainable farming practices.
