BRINGING PIGS BACK TO THE FARM
Many of the Bell generations before me raised pigs, so when I was looking for an opportunity to diversify our farm once again, raising pigs just felt right. In 2017, I built our current barn.
As a young farmer, it’s a big risk, but at the same time if you don’t take any risks in life, you won’t gather any reward from it either.
Raising pigs has been a real positive for our family. My hope is that my kids will continue farming and be the seventh generation to farm here.
RAISING PIGS WITH THE PRINCIPLES OF REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE
As a pig farmer, I think about the Earth’s natural resources every day. Land, water, and air are critical to farmers and our ability to continue to provide an affordable food supply. I want to preserve and improve these natural resources, minimize waste and above all, farm in a sustainable way.
You could say we’re using the principles of the three R’s we all learned about in elementary school – reduce, reuse, recycle – to meet our sustainability goals.
