Why are we doing this podcast?

North Carolina holds a special place in our heart. It's our home and our community. We were founded in Smithfield, North Carolina in 1941, and we use as many North Carolina farmers and suppliers as we can to make our Bright Leaf Hot Dogs and other Bright Leaf products.

This state does food differently, and we're excited to tell you all about it and introduce you to must-try foods you'll find in the grocery store or online, or in your own town!
