The first stop on our trip was to Good Pork Farm, located in Olsburg, Kansas. Here I got the extreme pleasure of meeting with Craig and Amy Good, arguably two of the nicest people I’ve encountered in my 28 years. The Good’s were gracious enough to invite us onto their farm, as well as into their home. Seeing the dedication and care that shown through when they spoke of how they raise their hogs made it easy to understand how they are able to produce the level of high-quality meat that comes from this farm. These hogs are truly their babies. Just as parents do all they can to provide the best nutrition and upbringing for their children, the hogs at Good’s farms experience the same level of care.
I found it very interesting when Craig Good showed us how they keep their hogs healthy and comfortable in their outdoor living spaces. I believe we all got a good chuckle watching the youngest hogs run about and play.
What floored me the most, however, was the amount of care that went into breeding. These hogs are carefully bred to provide only the finest quality. What I loved most about the Good’s is that they are constantly seeing new ways to improve their operation. Even seemingly small things such as adding fish oil to the diets of pregnant and nursing mothers help make the difference between good pork, and the top of the line pork that Good Farms sends to Heritage Foods!
