Dwight Hall Farm – Beulaville, NC

The Hall family has worked the same land for many generations, raising hogs, tobacco, and other crops. Dwight Hall now farms 40 acres, raising Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World (AGW) sows and their offspring on a portion of his acreage while growing feed on the rest. He also works off-farm as a carpenter and a general contractor.

Pigs at Dwight Hall 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. Dwight raises two breeds that are specifically adapted to outdoor, pasture-based management: Duroc and Yorkshire. Duroc pigs are well-known for their exceptional meat quality, while Dwight chose the Yorkshire breed for their mothering ability, larger litters, length, scale, and frame.

The Hall’s operation is a true family farm, with Dwight and his wife, Linda, running the operation, and their youngest son is planning to stay involved. Dwight explains that he has always loved working with hogs: “Seeing them grow makes me happy.” He also says that he is especially pleased to know he will be able to pass this farm on to the next generation.

Dwight is also a member of the North Carolina Natural Hog Growers Association, a cooperative of Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW hog producers who sell to restaurants, retailers, and food processors throughout the region.
