RAFI staff will be visiting with Jeremiah Jones and others from the NC Natural Hog Growers Association on Monday, November 9, 2015. Jeremiah Jones is coordinating the NC Natural Hog Growers Association in conducting their tests of growing non-GMO seed, primarily corn and soy. The testing will help verify that their feed sources are non-GMO and allow them to attain a market advantage. They received a grant from the Agricultural Reinvestment Fund this year to conduct the project. Learn more about all the grant awards to farmers in NC on our website here. If you’re interested in learning more about the project, please contact Jean at jean@rafiusa.org.
