Shawn and Jenny Hatley raise Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World (AGW) pigs in the North Carolina Piedmont. As far back as 1000 A.D., the Hatleys have been well established in and around Cambridge, England, giving rise to the farm’s name. As the fourth generation of Hatleys to manage the family farm in Oakboro, NC, Shawn and Jenny are building on tradition while innovating for the future.
“In order to produce the finest tasting meats, we start with the best breeds, raise them according to the highest welfare standards and feed them a balanced diet,” Shawn says. “Our animals are bred and born on farm, and spend their lives living on a rotationally managed forage system to protect environmental integrity.”
Shawn and Jenny’s marketing arm for their tasty products, The Naked Pig Meat Co., was born out of their family’s search for meat products without subtherapeutic antibiotics and other artificial enhancements, harvested from healthy and happy pigs raised outdoors. The Hatleys believe this dedication to careful husbandry is evident in the high quality meat they offer.
Shawn and Jenny selected the AGW program as an independent third party to further highlight their family’s dedication to the rigorous, high-welfare animal husbandry protocols that are also important to their customers, friends, and family. Cambridgeshire Farm is also a member of the North Carolina Natural Hog Growers’ Association, which supplies Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW pork to restaurants and retailers throughout the Southeast region.
Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW pork from Cambridgeshire Farm is available online and at the Hatleys’ retail counter, located at 129 S. Main Street in Oakboro, North Carolina. Learn more at http://www.thenakedpig.com/.
