Our Story


What Began as a Passion for Pork
and Farming

Farming has been the primary occupation and lifestyle of the Vittetoe family for many generations. Jerome Vittetoe found his love for pork production through the Washington County FFA Chapter gilt program where he gained knowledge and experience breeding and farrowing sows and then feeding and finishing pigs for market.

The Start of JWV Pork

After high school,  Jerome began farming full-time. In 1981 he met and married his wife, Heidi, and together the Vittetoes were able to expand their herd and grow the company from one employee to more than 80 employees today.
