The best way to save animals from suffering in factory farms is to stop factory farms from being built in the first place… and, after a nearly two-year long battle on behalf of the pigs, that’s exactly what has happened in Harden, NSW!
When Blantyre Farms submitted plans to build an ‘intensive piggery’ in Harden, they clearly underestimated just how strong community opposition to factory farming is.
Local group, Say No to Blantyre Farms in Harden, immediately put their compassion into action — and have been working tirelessly for many months, determined to nip these cruel plans in the bud. And when Animals Australia members offered their support — our combined efforts resulted in a massive community backlash.
Just days before Christmas, Hilltops Council was flooded with a record number of submissions from caring people, who dropped everything over the festive season to rally behind the pigs and voice their opposition to Blantyre Farms‘ plans to confine thousands of these sensitive animals in a sprawling new factory farm.
