A new series of undercover images revealed that
birds at the Hargin turkey farm in Minnesota are kept in unimaginable
conditions. For instance, they were caught on camera while bleeding from deep
gashes, limping on diseased, weak feet, being caught and crammed in mechanical
According to a representative of the farm, all
industry standards for animal welfare are obeyed.
25, 000 turkeys are at this farm. This is not the

We ask the Hargin Farm to become Humane Certified
and thus certify that turkeys are kept in decent conditions. We all deserve
humanely raised food!
