Jered Serben is the 4th generation in his family to tackle farming out by Smoky Lake. Over the generations, his family went from traditional pioneered diversified family farm [was there a method other than organic in the early 1900's?], to industrial conventional factory pork farming – all the way back to natural, free range practices. Having grown up immersed in the business of ‘factory farming’ pork, he has an unusually credible position to speak to that approach. He even takes us for a little tour of one of the remaining now-vacant pork barns from that era that still stands on the property. The pork’s now chemical free and free ranged – as are his chickens, turkeys, and sheep.
Unlike his great-grandfather’s, you can buy Jered’s products online via their website.
