Pillen Family

Caring for animals is our business.

Although our business has grown and evolved over the years, our commitment to providing high-quality care for our animals has remained. We believe in adopting and upholding the industry’s highest ethical principals and animal well-being practices. And our team members, across every farm, provide quality care to assure each animal is taken care of.

We pledge to create a caring environment for our animals.

Our team members commit to the Pillen family’s promise of doing what’s right. That means providing humane treatment to all pigs at each farm, at all times. We’re committed to complete compliance with the Nebraska Livestock Animal Welfare Act, the National Pork Board’s PQA Plus Program and every component of its Common Swine Industry Audit. No level of abuse, cruelty or neglect of our animals is accepted or tolerated — we’re 100% committed to treating our animals, and our team, right. Join our team.
