Hog Farmer tells the untold story of Joey Carter, a North Carolina farmer who was known as a model citizen in the small rural town of Beulaville.
A friendly neighbor who was always willing to lend a hand to those in need, Joey was a member of the volunteer fire department and had once served as the town’s police chief.
He was not the type of person who ever expected to find himself caught up in the middle of a federal lawsuit involving some of the nation’s most ruthless trial lawyers and one of the world’s largest food companies.
But that’s exactly what happened when Joey’s family farm became the focal point in a series of nuisance trials that attracted national and international media attention.
While a handful of his neighbors leveled charges of environmental racism in hopes of winning multi-million-dollar verdicts, Joey was left wondering how this could happen to a man who always played by the rules.
