Palatka's Black Hog Farm To Begin Regional Distribution

Farm to table in Jacksonville.
Darren Dean

A local favorite farm is hooking up with one of the biggest distributors in the world.

Black Hog Farm in Palatka has signed a contract with Sysco, which will ship the farm’s produce to local restaurants.

The deal is expected to widen the reach of Black Hog. Its meats and vegetables can now be found in about a half dozen local restaurants, but could soon be delivered as far south as St. Augustine and as far north as Savannah.

Black Hog plans on also sourcing items from other local farms, expanding the types of items that would be distributed.
