Dobson Farm – Magnolia, NC

Fred Dobson was raised on a farm by a father with lots of knowledge about farming and raising animals. Growing up on a farm, and learning through hands-on experience, gave Fred the skills and inspiration to farm himself. Today, Fred raises Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World (AGW) pigs at Dobson Farm in Magnolia, North Carolina.

The pigs at Dobson Farm are raised outdoors on pasture or range, where they are free to root and forage as pigs naturally do. This high-welfare management is a fundamental component of AGW certification and is known to have environmental, nutritional, and culinary benefits.

“From the start, I have been very particular about my farm practices, especially the safety and welfare of my animals,” says Fred. He chose to pursue certification with AGW for the third-party verification the program provides. With his AGW certification, consumers can be assured that he adheres to the highest animal welfare standards in his farm management and practices—standards that promote the health of animals, humans, and the environment.

The Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW label is also a powerful marketing tool and it has helped Fred to expand his market and meet the ever-growing local demand for high-quality, high-welfare product.
