"Pork is King at Nahunta Pork Center, dubbed the largest pork center on the East Coast. Opened in 1955 by Mack Pierce, years before the era of large scale animal farming, Nahunta started as a hog weighing center and slaughterhouse.
Three generations and 61 years later, Nahunta now processes over 500 hogs a week, sells nearly a million pounds of country sausage links each year, and thousands of country hams every holiday season. These southern staples and their more bizarre pork fare, such as tom thumb and souse, draw crowds from across the state and the East Coast to this tiny community in northern Wayne County. Nahunta is more than just a thriving business in rural Eastern N.C. It’s a place locals are proud to call their own, a true family business."
