The Patchwork Story

Looking for Family Farm Pork?—Look No Further!

Patchwork Family Farms is a project of MRCC composed of independent Missouri family hog farmers, who want to bring their product to you, the local consumer. Our cooperative livestock production and sales model supports independent producers, protects the environment and creates jobs for rural community members.

We believe in raising pork the traditional way using sustainable and humane growing standards.  The result is a natural and premium quality product. We also ensure that farmers receive a fair price for what they produce. This is important because the current hog marketplace is not open, fair or competitive. When you purchase Patchwork Family Farms products, you support Missouri’s family farms, independent agriculture and rural economies!
