Company Profile
ARCHER FARMS, INC. is a nationally accredited Specific Pathogen-Free swine herd that consists of 140 purebred Yorkshire females. The original breeding stock came from a primary SPF herd in the Midwest. ARCHER FARMS, INC. is a closed-herd that is housed in a shower-in/shower-out facility that is designed for “all-in/all-out” management.

The policy in our operation is that swine that leave our facility NEVER return to the facility. Our trucks are cleaned and disinfected after deliveries. All deliveries are made by ARCHER FARMS, INC. approved drivers in our climate-controlled vehicles. Site visitation is very limited. All visitors must be away from any other swine for at least a week and must shower in and wear our disposable clothes. Biosecurity in our facility is strictly enforced!

Archer Farms Inc offers customers the best possible and consistent quality animals. Our operation is designed and managed with the end-user in mind. Therefore our animals are healthier and better acclimated to human contact than commercially-raised animals.

We use climate-controlled vehicles in our operation that allow us to expand our service area and keep the animals (while in transit) in the same good condition as they are when they leave the farm.
