Welcome To The Maine Pork Producers  Web Site

We, as Maine Pork Producers, choose to produce quality pork products for consumers using ethical production practices while being sustainable environmental stewards of the land.” 
We, as pork producers, owe it to the future of our industry to participate in the Pork Checkoff program.  Pork Checkoff funds allow us to promote, advertise, and market pork products within the State of Maine.  We provide education to consumers (pig farmers are consumers too!) on pork safety, public health, and swine health.
The “Pork Be Inspired” campaign, backed by pork Checkoff dollars, has grown US pork consumption from 29% of all households in 2011 to 35% in 2012.  Let’s promote and reposition Maine pork to maintain our share of that growth and to keep those monies local.  We also promote the use of the “We Care” initiative.  This focuses upon the ethical principles that promote animal care, environment, food safety, health and community.
Pork producers can join the “We Care” initiative by participating in Pork Quality Assurance (PQA+) training and having their farm evaluated by a PQA+ site specialist.
