I recently went on a press trip sponsored by the Animal Agriculture Alliance and the National Pork Board to tour pig farms. Yes, you heard me correctly, pig farming. Most people think I’m the epitome of prissy and have no idea I was quite the tomboy growing up. So throwing off my uniform of sundresses and cute shoes to hop into work boots was actually quite a bit of fun for this country turned city girl.
Our merry band of bloggers flew in from all over the country to Raleigh, NC, and after a luscious dinner at 18 Seaboard headed to our hotel for a nights rest before meeting the bus the next morning at 7 a.m. to drive to Clinton, NC. I’ve been a lot of places, but Clinton is not one of them. It was going back home, but only if home was a much more remote area. How remote? A lot of time my phone service was on 1x — I’ve not seen that type of coverage since I had a flip phone.
