"Pig Adventure" Breaks New Ground

Today I attended the groundbreaking ceremony for the Fair Oaks Pig Adventure in Fair Oaks, Indiana.  The Pig Adventure will be a modern, 2500+ sow swine farm that will showcase the latest technology and production capabilities utilized by the pork industry.  More importantly though, the Pig Adventure will be open to the public.  Adults and school children will be able walk through the facility on an elevated platform to see how modern pigs are raised.  The farm will be coupled with a nearby education center that will seek to inform the public about modern swine raising.  To my knowledge, the Pig Adventure will be the first such facility in the nation, if not the world.

Fair Oaks Farms has already made this concept work with dairy farming.  Over 250,000 people per year tour Fair Oaks' farm and dairy education center, making it too a one-of-kind agri-tourism destination.

The Fair Oaks Pig Adventure opens next year.  For more information, click here.
