THIS LITTLE PIG CAME TO MARKET
2 p.m. Sunday, March 27  
Upton Sinclair’s The Jungle, published in 1906, exposed the working conditions of the meat-packing industry and led to the creation of federal food safety laws. Born from these changes in the early part of the 20th century, this hog-slaughtering industry greatly impacted local farmers. Smithfield weathered these changes and continues to thrive today as the Ham Capital of the World. Learn more about the historic changes in industry procedures with today’s lecture host, former Smithfield Times Editor John Edwards
