Hog Tractors

Farm: Pickett Farm
Operators: Beth Kahn and Chris Pickett
Production: Vegetables, Livestock (Hogs)
Location: Beulaville, Duplin County, NC
Beth Kahn and Chris Pickett’s project is building hog tractors that will hold up to 7 hogs at a time. They will be rotated over 2 rows of crops for more efficient feeding, greater weight gain, and enhanced soil fertility. They hope to offer the tractors for sale and will use 4 on their farm to raise 80 hogs.
