The Heritage Foods cooperative was founded in 2001 to preserve endangered species of livestock from extinction. Their partner farmers grow 100% heritage breed pigs, turkeys, lamb, chickens, ducks, guineas, and geese. All animals are raised humanely, outdoors, on pasture, using traditional farming techniques.
