Road to Rural Prosperity Features Joey Carter about his movie "Hog Farmer" and his battle To Keep his FarmFri, 23 Sep 2022 13:53:09 CDT
On this Road to Rural Prosperity Podcast, KC Sheperd shares the story of Joey Carter, a hard-working farmer who was widely regarded as a model citizen in a rural North Carolina town. Carter is the focus of a movie coming out in October called Hog Farmer- the Trials of Joey Carter.
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 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 has always taken pride in playing by the rules.
Watch the trailer and stay tuned to this page for details about community screenings and worldwide debut on Amazon coming up October 14.
Farm Director, KC Sheperd visits with Joey Carter, and Jason Authors, the photojournalist for the film about what led up to these events, and what Joey is doing now.
