Bobby Tucker and the rest of his “Team Okfuskee” raise Animal Welfare Approved heritage pigs and laying hens on the Ofuskee Farm just outside of Siler City, North Carolina. Established in 2008, the 20-acre Ofuskee farm is a relatively young farm that is devoted to biodiversity and self-reliance. With a BA in environmental engineering and an MS in Biological Agriculture and Water Quality, Bobby has a deep passion and understanding of sustainability and permaculture.
All of Okfuskee’s pigs and laying hens are raised on pasture, and are never given hormones or unnecessary antibiotics. Says Bobby, “Our farm is based on permaculture and agroecological principles, including ecological site planning, water-focused design, and bio-diverse and integrated livestock farming… all with a goal towards local sustainability.”
