Speaker Bio

Gra Moore is a lifelong farming enthusiast and followed his interest into college, where he earned a poultry science degree at North Carolina State University. He then entered the commercial sector, but realized his interest was in more sustainable production. He returned to the farm life to raise heritage poultry and soon followed in his father's footsteps in raising pigs. His herd has grown to include several breeds and has been a great success, with his pork being marketed throughout the Southeast.
