Nestled in the heart of Hurdle Mills, McGibney Family Farms is a first-generation farming venture driven by a deep-rooted passion for sustainable agriculture. Born and raised in Durham, my journey into farming began during high school when I started working at a local CSA farm near Southpoint Mall. This job ignited a lifelong love for sustainable agriculture and set me on a path to pursue a degree in Ag Business and Swine Production at NC State.
During my time at NC State, my studies delved into the intricacies of running a confinement swine operation. However, I had the good fortune to end up working for a farmer who raised their animals on pasture, and that forever changed my perspective. Witnessing the stark contrast between the confined pigs at the university and the contented animals on the pasture-based farm, I realized the immense implications of raising animals in confinement.
In 2017, McGibney Family Farms was born with a resolute mission: to prioritize animal welfare while delivering high-quality, nutritious meat. We wholeheartedly believe that happy and healthy animals result in superior products, and we are dedicated to providing a more ethical and sustainable alternative to conventional farming practices.
What sets McGibney Family Farms apart:
1. Animal Welfare: We place the utmost importance on the well-being of our animals. Our pigs, chickens, and Turkeys, are afforded the freedom to roam and exhibit their natural behaviors. With ample access to pasture, fresh air, and sunshine, our animals experience a life that respects their inherent needs and instincts.
2. Regenerative Agriculture: Our commitment to raising animals on pasture extends beyond animal welfare. By embracing regenerative farming practices, we actively contribute to the restoration and enhancement of our land and ecosystem. Pasture-based systems improve soil health, increase biodiversity, and sequester carbon, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and mitigating climate change. Through our regenerative practices, we harness the power of nature to heal the land and build a more sustainable future.
3. Nutrient-Dense Meat: The combination of our animals' natural diet, exercise, and stress-free environment translates into meat that is exceptionally flavorful and packed with essential nutrients. By prioritizing animal welfare and implementing regenerative farming practices, we create products that not only taste incredible but also nourish your body and support your well-being.
We are immensely grateful for your support in our mission to provide high-quality, nutritious meat while prioritizing animal welfare and implementing regenerative agriculture practices. By choosing McGibney Family Farms, you become an integral part of our farming journey and contribute to a more compassionate, sustainable, and regenerative future.
