The Second Annual NC Choices Carolina Meat Conference was held in early December 2012 in the beautiful and historic Winmock Dairy in Bermuda Run, NC. The conference was attended by over 380 producers, meat processors, food buyers and support businesses engaged in advancing the local and niche meat industry in North Carolina and beyond.
