Neighbor Bobby Bradds loads hog feed at the local mill in Julian, North Carolina. It's an old style feed mill where farmers can still bring their own grain and have it custom ground. Bobby raises "farm raised" pork for the local Greensboro market. His hogs are allowed to roam in a pasture and not shut up in commercial pens, part of the rising "slow food" movement in our area.
