Gerald James was born in 1972 in Maple Hill, North Carolina to Mary and Nelson James, veteran pasture-raised hog producers and founding members of the North Carolina Natural Hog Growers Association. As their oldest child, Gerald grew up working on the farm, helping his Dad with chores. “But I had no intention of becoming a farmer. Looking back, I think I must have been tricked into doing it.”
