Swaggerty’s Farm Expands Tennessee Plant to Double Production Capacity

Swaggerty’s Farm, a family-owned pork sausage maker, is set to expand its production capacity for the second time in four years at its headquarters in eastern Tennessee. The company announced plans to construct a 50,000-square-foot facility that will significantly boost output.

The new building will utilize energy-efficient construction techniques and materials and is expected to be completed within a year. Unlike many expansion projects, Swaggerty’s Farm confirmed in an email to Meatingplace that it did not receive any tax incentives for this development. The primary focus of the project is to enhance operational efficiencies, and it is not anticipated to create new jobs.

Founded in 1930 near the Great Smoky Mountains, close to the tourist areas of Sevierville and Pigeon Forge, Swaggerty’s Farm has a long history in the region. Today, its pork sausage products are available through 18,000 retailers, distributors, and food service operations nationwide.
