Christensen Farms takes pride in responsibly stewarding the many resources entrusted to us while fulfilling our mission of producing high-quality pork to help feed a growing world. As we mark the 10th anniversary of the passing of our founder, Bob Christensen, we will continue managing our business in ways that honor his legacy and support our commitments to sustainability, to those who work for and with us, to the animals in our care, to our planet, and to our ability to remain viable now and in the future.

In this Sustainability Report, we outline new strategic initiatives – LEGUP 2030 and our four Sustainability Tenets – that will guide our decisions in the decade to come. To read more about the impact of our efforts so far, and where we are heading, we invite you to download and read our 2022 Sustainability Report.

Christensen Farms is committed to a comprehensive, balanced, systems approach to manage our business—doing the right things correctly, demonstrating continuous improvement and minimizing tradeoffs that have a detrimental impact on our people, our pigs, our planet or our ability to be sustainable and viable.

We are committed to doing what’s right for our people, pigs, planet, community, and the customers who purchase our pork. Our focus is targeted throughout the following key areas. For detailed information on our current efforts, download our 2021 Sustainability Report.
