Thank you for keeping up the fight against industrial pig farming

Thank you to all of you who signed our letter to Derbyshire County Council - a huge 7,985 of you have let the Council know that we don’t want thousands of pigs to be forced to spend their entire lives indoors in a proposal that if allowed, could herald a new era of US styled factory farming in the UK. Derbyshire County Council will be reaching a final decision in the coming months - we will keep you posted via our website and e-news. If you'd like to be one of the first to know what happens sign up to our e-news here.

The campaign so far

Find out about the plans for a large scale pig factory in Derbyshire and the evidence which suggests that raising pigs on this scale could risk having a serious impact on human health - as well as on the welfare of pigs.
