Farming

No one should kill to make a living.

There are many viable alternatives to food production and agriculture in general, other than using other animals as food.  Alternatives to animal agriculture are not only beneficial to non-humans; they are also a solution to the harsh life and unpredictable income facing farmers in the meat, fish, egg and dairy sectors.

If you are farming animals and you want to make the transition to a more ethical, plant based way of earning a living, please contact us and we will assist in whatever way we can.
