The Pork Shop has been specializing in fresh pork products since it opened in 1979. At the time Greg Combs, a third generation Arizona farmer, was looking for an alternative marketing source for his swine operation. Selling fresh pork directly to the consumer seemed like a good idea since no one else was doing it at the time. So Greg learned some butchering skills, developed some sausage recipes, and started retailing his own hogs right on the family homestead in Queen Creek where his grandfather first started farming in the 1940's. Before long The Pork Shop began to add smoked products to it's line, as well as a great variety of fresh home made sausages and lunch meats. Soon the business grew to the point that Greg now buys all natural mid-western corn fed pork, devoting his entire time to the development and production of the delicious pork products available at The Pork Shop.
