|Many people are increasingly interested
in knowing where their food comes from and how it is produced. The way
agriculture is performed can have a huge impact on our air and water quality,
our health, and the state’s economy. Sustainable agriculture includes
methods of production that increase profit while also benefiting the land,
consumers, and community.

|Caw Caw Creek Pastured Porks
- Emile DeFelice conducts his farm according to agricultural practices
that promote diversity and preserve the environment. The pigs he
raises are allowed to roam freely and are rotated through pasture and woods.
Neither waste lagoons nor confinement housing are used, so the pigs do
not need supplemental medications the typical factory farmer would use
to maximize production. Farming practices also strive to minimize
waste by returning manure to the soil as a fertilizer. http://www.cawcawcreek.com/index.php
