Thompson Farmsis a family-owned pig farm located in Dixie, Georgia. “Grandaddy” Raymond started the farm at the age of 74 after having grown up in the pig farming industry. His son Andrew, who now manages the family farm, continues Raymond's legacy with his own children, Abby and Bayly. Their pastured pigs roam free on the farm to promote regenerative agriculture, getting room to do what comes natural, such as rooting in the dirt, grazing green pastures and lounging in the mud. They live out their entire life on the farm from birth to harvest, never confined in crates or cages.

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. They reproduce naturally and are never fed any antibiotics or growth hormones. Heritage meats are juicy and tender from their marbling and boast a profound taste and depth of flavor that has not been squashed by a corporate culture that only cares about rapid production.
