From Boone County, Nebraska to Witten, South Dakota, our commitment to our team and the communities they live, raise their families and worship is central to who we are.

Quality of Life

As a family-owned and -operated farming enterprise, great care goes into
everything we do. From our family members to our team members — even
our pigs — we believe in treating others with respect, offering a helping hand and giving them the tools to be the best they can be.

We also support the communities we live in and those that our team members live in. We are active members of our communities, churches and schools and do what we can to protect the local environment. Pillen Family Farms believes in nurturing quality of life ... for our generation and many more to come.


The Pillen family has been working with the land for four generations. We understand the importance of clean air and water and do our best to go above and beyond to help safeguard the environment. We continue to look for ways to implement best practices and conservation techniques to create healthy, clean farms for our pigs, team members and neighbors. We work with local farmers to apply more than 150M gallons of natural fertilizer from our farms directly onto their crops every year.

We have experienced agronomy leadership members and work to comply with all Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) regulations. This includes manure management plans, natural air filters such as tree lines and shrub plantings, biofilter systems, lined lagoons, and more.
