Lady Edison sources whole hogs exclusively from the North Carolina Natural Hog Growers Association and is committed to using all parts of each pasture-raised hog we buy. The NCNHGA small family farms promote traditional, sustainable farming practices and are all third-party Animal Welfare Approved and certified non-GMO. Lady Edison hogs are a heritage cross of Berkshire, Chester White, and Duroc and are raised 100% on pasture.
Lady Edison is known for our Good Food Award-winning, Lady Edison Extra Fancy Country Ham, ‘Nduja, Chorizo, Salami, Pancetta, and more. Lady Edison products are available locally at the renowned Carrboro Farmers’ Market, Weaver Street Market, and the Durham Coop.

Owner Sam Suchoff, a North Carolinian by way of Los Angeles, got his start in the food business working at several well-known Chapel Hill area restaurants including Neal’s Deli and Lantern. Sam opened his first restaurant, The Pig, in 2010, a whole hog bbq joint founded on the values of animal welfare and sustainability. You can also catch Sam at his other ventures, PiggyBack, the cozy neighborhood bar behind The Pig, Deli Edison, the delicatessen across the patio, or roller skating the loop at the Carrboro Farmers’ Market every Saturday morning.
