About Us / Jamie Jacobs Farm History: Produces Animal Welfare Approved pork.\n\nJamie Jacobs has been farming since the 1970s on the family farm he was raised on in Clinton, North Carolina. While his family has always grown row crops, today Jamie raises hogs with the help of his son, James, as his father did from time to time.\n\nJamie’s Animal Welfare Approved pigs are a four-way cross between Duroc, Hampshire, Yorkshire and Berkshire breeds. This cross works well in Jamie’s pasture-based rotational system in which pigs are born and raised outside. The strong mothering instinct that his sows use to raise their young, on pasture, makes them very protective of their young and able to raise their piglets on their own.\n\nWhile raising pigs on pasture is a bit more work, this management technique adds value to Jamie’s hogs. It allows Jamie to stay on the family farm and make a living from farming it since the old stand-by crops like tobacco have lost their value.\n\nJamie Jacobs Farm is part of the North Carolina Natural Hog Growers Association.
