     Farming for a Healthier Future.
     Haywood Leigh and his wife are dedicated to bringing an old-fashioned sensibility back to farming. Located near the Albemarle Sound in Plymouth, NC, Leigh’s Pork and Beef relies on time-tested methods of animal husbandry to produce premium meats that are free from unnatural additives and unnecessary processing. These are the principles Haywood Leigh first learned farming alongside his father at age 8, and they’ve guided him in his own business for over two decades.
     Unlike many farmers, Leigh insists on growing and storing his own grain. He cultivates corn and soy on his land, and barters with another local farmer for hay. By splitting the labor – one plants and the other bales – both can ensure that their animals get a dependable food supply from a nearby source. In addition, Leigh’s pigs and cows are allowed to roam freely on the 45 acre farm, grazing at their leisure. Haywood plans to keep the herd small so that he can continue to focus on quality.
The Leigh’s motto, “farming for a healthier future,” reflects their commitment to sustainable,  small-scale meat production. In an age where factory farming dominates the industry, it can be hard to make a living this way but husband and wife agree the rewards are immense.
