“We know that we are growing one of the best tasting, highest quality pigs in the nation. Now we want to take that product to the next level, but we need a permanent home to do that. The Chef Cooperatives organizers have spoken to us several times over the past few years, and we have provided pork to many of their events. They asked me what we could do as an event together, and I said we need a permanent home. They immediately said, ‘We are on it!’ Mark and I want everyone to know that their efforts will not go unnoticed nor without thanks,” said Kelley Escobeda, Co-owner of South Texas Heritage Pork.
