Meet the Farmer
You might say, "Larry Fink knows pork from conception to consumption." After more than 25 years experience in breeding, showing and judging pork breeding stock, as well as meat processing, Larry decided to put his experience and passions for top-quality genetics to use for the public and begin Destiny Meats. As a farm boy growing up in the Heart of Illinois, he began raising hogs and showing in 4-H at the early age of 10. He quickly developed a passion for the extreme meat breeds, which led him to focus on Hampshire and Duroc lines. He went to earn an Associates degree in animal science from Blackhawk East Junior College and a Bachelor of Science in agricultural science from Western Illinois University. His experience in National livestock judging contests and showing, coupled with certified breeder experience has given him an edge on proper genetic selection to create the ultimate pork products. He has been privileged to work alongside some of the best certified breeders in the nation to fine-tune his genetic choice. The LF-77 Genetic lines that he has streamlined include only Certified Hampshire and Duroc breeds for the best pork products possible. Unlike many competitors who mix the Hampshire/Duroc males with females of other meat-inferior breeds, Larry uses only Hampshire/Duroc males and females for the highest quality pork possible.
