DetailIn 1989, the Maxwell Family, owner and operators of Goldsboro Milling Company, which is ranked as the nation's top turkey producer and processor with the recent purchase of Butterball from Con Agra in partnership with Smithfield Foods, was faced with excess milling capacity. Recognizing the success of their neighbors in the pig business, they decided to diversify and established Maxwell Foods, LLC. The Maxwells found they liked the hog business and expanded the sow rapidly to become one of the top pork production systems in North Carolina.
