• Michigan DNR Forces Closure of Family-run Heritage Hog Farm

    Mark and Jill Baker of Bakers Green Acres have announced they are closing and selling their 80 acre family farm in Northern Michigan. Their markets for their Mangalitsa Hogs have been "roadblocked at every corner," according to Mark. Mark says, "There are entities that are working behind the scene that are destroying our market and really running very negative campaigns against us. We're just a family farm.

    Contact Edwards Ham in Surry, Virginia. They are now raising a European hog the natural way. Even though they are close to a lot of hog farms, there doesn't seem to be a problem. My family is from Hungary and the Mangalista hog is WONDERFUL! Too bad our country only favors big business. So sorry for you and your family.

    So sorry you have been hounded into self-preservation, how we all hate BigAg* - the public is actually totally sick & tired of the pressures pushing down from Big Industry of every kind - revolution is brewing everywhere, if it were not for so many people being shoved downwards at the same time, with low wages, lack of jobs that people are scared for their survival, when you have so many people realizing that the top guys are NOT on their side, how long before things explode ??? I really hope you can find a new farm, maybe in another State that is not doing this ? Good luck with your family and a new life and please keep growing those great free-range pigs which look so happy running in the grass !!
