Pork Farmers and the economy


Thought our customers and supporters would be interested in this article in the St. Louis Beacon about hog farming. I’ve written about Patchwork Farms before and this article touches on what this group of farmers in rural Missouri is doing to save family farming.  This article also gives a great overview of how CAFO’s operate and the problems associated with them.  http://www.stlbeacon.org/economy/farmers_struggle_to_make_ends_meat_
