The Problem

One indicator of the shady nature of the pork industry is the difficulty for consumers to find out just exactly how their sausage was made. In large part, this is a result of “ag-gag” laws: laws that prevent film or photography inside factory farms without the owner’s consent. This lack of accountability among conventional farmers has huge negative impacts on marketplace transparency, environmental protection, food safety, and animal welfare.

Our Food Fix

You can take a stand for transparency in your food system with every bite of Local Roots pork. When we visit our pig farmer in the Poconos, our team spends most of the day wandering the woodlands, trying to find the pigs as they forage and roam freely. Farmer Nolan (and his mom) raise heritage breeds that have keen survival instincts, making them more adaptable to outdoor living — there’s nothing to hide here.

What Locals Are Saying...

Local Roots meat is handled with care and you can taste it. There are no preservatives, nitrates or funky chemicals. It's super fresh.
