Project Gives NC Hog Farmers "Choices"

Last week's Independent Weekly "Eat Beat" column featured a project that the NC Sierra Club is part of called N.C. Choices. It is a collaboration between the Center for Environmental Farming Systems at N.C. A&T, N.C. State and the state Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services in which they are working to promote local food production and consumption while at the same time helping farmers adopt more sustainable hog raising and pork processing practices. Currently, the project is just focusing on hog farms but hopes to expand to cattle and plant production. Check out the article and learn more about NC Choices at their website.
