About Piggy Bank:
All proceeds will benefit Piggy Bank, a Missouri farm that helps launch new family farms by providing heritage breed piglets and access to business plans. Piggy Bank also serves as a safety net to farmers in the wake of a disaster. In 2018, Piggy Bank assisted in distribution of $22,000 to farmers after Hurricane Harvey. Together we are planting the seeds today to make sure we have heritage species and family farmers in the future.
