GIBSON FAMILY FARMS
Yes, there is a lot of hype and despair surrounding the current state of farming in the U.S., and yes, Dustin Gibson is doing something about it. Barely 30 years old, instead of leaving the family farming business, Dustin is expanding it. Dustin raises 100% grass-fed Angus beef and Berkshire, Tamworth, and Mulefoot hogs for us on farms that he’s bought or leased from older famers who are about to retire in and around Eagle Bridge, NY. His beef is raised on lush NY state grass and his hogs lounge in acres of wooded shade where they happily root for acorns, grubs, and whatever else they can get their hocks on. Dustin likes rainbows, long walks in the park, tractors and Twisted Tea.
SIR WILLIAM BERKSHIRE
Bruce Conover’s family has a long farming history in New York state. How long? They were farming in northern Manhattan in the early 1800’s when local food wasn’t just a buzz word, it was the only option. Bruce raises 100% Berkshire hogs for us in Craryville, N.Y., and feeds them grain that he grows himself. Bruce's Berkshires have lots of smooth, creamy fat and are well-marbled, meaning you don't have to look any further to find all the flavor you want in a pork chop.
