On Raising Pigs for Niman Ranch, etc
Check out: Coming Home to Hogs
Niman Ranch hogs are among the enterprises launching a new career
I'm getting pigs this year...and so are quite a few others. It turns out that cooperative marketing structures like Organic Valley and Niman Ranch are super helpful for small, young and new producers. Meaning - if there is already a supply chain established, its kind of like a bike path ... you don't have to carve your market out of the wilderness.
Thank goodness for the vision and entrepreneurship of our elders.
