Whiteshire Hamroc is proud to have been farming in northeast Indiana for more than 100 years. Building on that heritage of innovation, our farming operation has grown to include:
- Sustainable crops – We manage approximately 4,100 acres of row crops each year, the grain from which is fed to our pigs, which then produce nutrient-rich manure that is injected into the soil as a natural plant food to replace fertility and micro-nutrients used by last year’s crops;
- Swine Genetics – Built upon generations of swine breeding expertise and industry-leading purebred lines, we produce world-class swine genetics and provide genetic improvement and production management services for customers in the U.S. and Asia through our alliance partnership in PureTek Genetics;
- Construction – Design and build advanced AirWorks™ swine barns that not only provide a more healthful environment for growing pigs, but generate significant energy savings for farmers;
- Medicine – At our farm, we raise a special group of pigs according to an exacting scientific protocol for use in human medicine and research;
- Retail Pork – We make and market our own line of top-quality retail pork cuts for families to enjoy at home; and
- Community Involvement – Whiteshire Hamroc is proud to employ local workers and support local causes, adding to the stability and quality of life in our rural communities.
