From the Plate to the Farm: MN Documentary Takes You On A Tour of Pork

“My ultimate goal as to being a part of the project was to be a voice of the industry, and of the other producers that are out there,” says Tim Schwartz, a Minnesota pork producer. “Hopefully we can tell the story in a way that people can connect with and tell a real authentic story of pork production and how everything goes daily on the farm.” ( Minnesota Pork Board )

The goal of every pork producer is to raise healthy, quality pigs to make the best possible pork for consumers across the world. But that conversation is long and diverse. Engaging consumers in a new way, educating the public about cooking pork and explaining different questions about pig production is one goal of a new documentary, “Meat of the North” from the Minnesota Pork Board.
