National Pig Day – March 1, 2020

We celebrated our favorite day of the year on Friday! New Horizon Farms was able to go to Pipestone’s Preschool classes, Kindergarten classes, a few day cares, and a 4th grade class. It was national Pig Day on Sunday, March 1. National Pig Day is a holiday that is dedicated to the celebration of the pig. This holiday – which is celebrated on March 1st every year – is celebrated in most parts of the Midwest in the United States. It was originally started in 1972 in Lubbock, Texas by Ellen Stanley and Mary Lynne Rave. This holiday’s purpose is to honor a domesticated livestock species that is considered to be one of the most intellectual and important species.

 

2019 Safety Employee of the Year

Congratulations to Steve Mollema, NHF’s 2019 Safety Employee of the Year. Steve has been with the company as a feed truck driver since 2013. In that time Steve has consistently came to work with a safety oriented attitude. Steve’s safe work practices are not only for his own safety but for that of his co-workers and other people that share the road with him.  Steve understands that doing a good job delivering feed also requires that it be done safely and with the highest regards to people and property.

Thank you Steve for all that you do!

National Pig Day 2018

National Pig Day was March 1st and once again New Horizon Farms took this opportunity to educate and often times introduce a baby pig to small children at local pre-schools and daycares.

We also drop by area nursing homes and facilities to allow the elderly men and women a chance to hold the little pig and share their stories of life on the farm.

Thank you to all for allowing us this awesome opportunity to educate and brighten your day.
