The Pig Project

The Larry & Ruth Schwartz Pig Project

The Pig Project came about when long time volunteers, Larry & Ruth Schwartz, asked if they could get enough donations to purchase some pigs from the stock show, would GSM be interested in receiving the meat?

We are always excited to provide quality sources of protein to our families so we easily agreed.

Mr. Schwartz passed away in 2019, right after the Youth Fair. Ruth Schwartz passed away February 26th, 2021. Their children and grandchildren want to continue the project in their memory and to honor the legacy and love they shared for agriculture and youth in our county. 

We are raising funds and working with the the Youth Fair to promote the project. The pigs are purchased from the youth and then taken for processing. The ground pork will then be delivered to the freezers of Good Samaritan Ministries to be distributed through the Food Pantry.
