Central to the natural pig farming philosophy is the belief that pig welfare matters (in-fact all farm animal welfare matters!). We raise profitable great tasty pork through respecting the pig and its behavioral needs. Our pigs are raised with love and slaughtered with a compassionate concern to minimise any distress.
We are totally opposed to any kind of knowing cruelty or disregard to the core needs of the pig. Because of this we are fundamentally opposed to the way our society chooses to raise pork. The factory farming systems used in today's pork production are an affront to our own common humanity and to our duty of care towards sentient beings. It is evil, pure and simple. We are all implicated - our governments that make the laws that permit such evil, and us, the people who are aware that these obscenities are being carried out in our name yet do nothing to stop it. And it is an evil that must be stopped.
This natural farming pig site therefore actively promotes action that opposes the present way society chooses to allow its pork to be raised. Please support the campaigns and organisations below that are fighting to improve pig (and other farm animal) welfare.
