New Summerfield, Tx (KETK) — East Texas is cattle country.
But for one New Summerfield family they have made raising pigs a lucrative business
David and Sandy Pate raise pigs on P&P Hog Farm, and with the help of their 750 pound boar hog Pigzilla, they are able to keep a constant supply of swine.
But rising costs in feed and equipment have forced them to raise some of their prices.
However that is supplemented by the fact that they process their own meat, right next door.
David Pate tells KETK, as the years go by, it becomes harder and harder to find farm pigs in East Texas.
See the rest of their and Pigzilla's story in the video above.
