Love bacon? But you don’t want to feed it to your kids because it’s processed, it’s got nitrite, and it’s unhealthy. Well, you and your kids can actually eat all the bacon you want. You just have to make sure you know where you’re getting it from.

Out of all the meat out there, it seems that pork has been the slowest to come around when it comes to ideal practices and humane stewardship. But Pederson’s Natural Farms has been doing this for a very long time. In fact, they’re the first to make no-sugar bacon available nationwide. 

In today’s episode, Neil Dudley, vice president of Pederson’s Natural Farms, joins us to talk about raising humane pork. He gives us a picture of how they raise pigs at Pederson’s Natural Farms. Additionally, we talk about organic – what that means for pigs and pork, and why it’s important to vote with your dollar.

At the end of the day, your nutrition is a key building block of your health and happiness. It affects every aspect of your life so it’s time we all reevaluate the food that we bring to the table.

  • A tangible picture of humanely raised pigs
  • Maintaining the biosecurity of farrowing farms
  • Sourcing meat from other local farmers
