About Us / Crosscreek Farm History: Colette Nester owns and operates Crosscreek Farm in North Carolina. Under the Animal Welfare Approved label she raises Jersey cows as well as traditional breed hogs. Colette is committed to producing food that has not been given artificial growth hormones or non-therapeutic antibiotics, and her pork is always the freshest lean meat. She believes that healthy food raised on pasture is vital for people to maintain their own well-being, and that this symbiosis between her farm and her community is a natural and important part of life. She explains, “This farm has been in our family for over 100 years, and we are continuing the tradition while offering a more holistic farming practice.”\nThe holistic approach used at Crosscreek Farm encompasses all stages of the animals’ lives - and this made the farm easily compatible with Animal Welfare Approved’s high-welfare standards. Their hogs and cows are raised outdoors, able to roll in the mud and eat grass, and enjoy a low-stress environment. By using sustainable, high-welfare farming practices Colette is ensuring her animals’ well-being, and providing the highest quality product to her community; everyone benefits and Colette is able to continue pursuing her passion for farming.
