Pledge to Eat Sustainable Meat

Farm_logo-01

A lot of folks in North Carolina produce meat. The state ranks second nationally in pork production and is among the nation’s leaders in poultry production. But the way meat is produced makes a big difference.

Corporate-controlled industrial animal operations are one of the leading contributors to water pollution across North Carolina. But there are farmers throughout the Tar Heel state striving to provide high-quality food without harming their local communities. And they deserve our thanks and our business.

Show your appreciation for environmentally conscious farmers who raise meat sustainably using traditional techniques. Please choose to make your holiday meals even more special by purchasing from true family farms and pledging to buy sustainably raised meat. And when you make your purchase, be sure to thank the farmer for taking steps to protect our environment!


Waterkeepers across North Carolina have compiled a list of farms in their watersheds that feed us without threatening our rivers, lakes, and streams. The inventory at these farms varies, but they all have one thing in common: they’re trying to do things the right way. We encourage you to buy from one of the farms listed below. And if you aren’t able to buy directly from a farmer, be sure to look for their products at farmers markets and grocery stores in your neighborhood, as many supply to local distributors.  

*Don't see a sustainable farm in your community on this list? Please let us know!
