New stretch target

Thank you! We did it! 

We have achieved our initial target and can now move forward with producing our new films to change consumers shopping habits. With the new stretch target, we'll set about spreading our message to even more people. 

For every £1 above our goal, we can reach an additional 520 people with our message. Doing this will ensure the largest number of possible people hear our message and only chose pork with a high animal welfare label.

To help close factory farms, we are making more short films to expose the true cost of animal factories and urge people to only buy pork with a high animal welfare label.  

Who Are We? Farms Not Factories is a small not-for-profit organisation that works through campaigns and films to expose the true costs of cheap meat from factory farms and thereby inspire people to only buy meat from high-welfare farms. 

What Do We Want To Achieve? We want to change the fact that  75% of the pork eaten in the UK comes from pigs raised in factory farms. 57% of the pork eaten in the UK is imported from countries which raise pigs in cruel conditions that are illegal in the UK, out-competing British farmers and destroying local livelihoods.

How Are We Going To Make This Change? 

1. The Great And The Good: Due to the overwhelming success of our previous series #TurnYourNoseUp (over 6 million reached) we plan to make a similar series with more celebrities e.g. Bruce Parry and many others. 

2. Rooting for Real Farms: For this series (over 1 million reached) we plan to make more videos with chefs and the farmers that supply their high welfare pork. Celebrity chefs, Thomasina Miers founder of Wahaca and Skye Gyngell head chef of Spring Restaurant are among many that will take part.

3. Pester Pig:  A series of films in which an indignant pig wreaks revenge on people who thoughtlessly chose pork from animal factories. See below our Pester Pig pilot which reached 62,000 views. 


Factory farming animals carries five heavy costs:

1. Cruelty to animals through confinement, mutilation, exploitation, neglect and denial of natural behaviours.

 2. To prevent disease spreading in the stressful overcrowded conditions, pigs are given routine doses of antibiotics. The toxic brew of bacteria and antibiotics is a fertile breeding ground for antimicrobial resistance - superbugs - that pass from pigs to humans. This reckless use of antibiotics is bringing us closer to a post-antibiotic era where once again people will die from common infections and minor injuries and operations.

3. The waste that comes from factory farms contaminates the air and water, sickening local residents, harming wildlife and polluting watercourses, rivers and the seas.

4. In order to compete globally, farms are increasingly concentrated into the hands of giant tax-dodging multinational corporations, undermining small-scale, ethical and sustainable farmers. 

5. Much of the feed for pigs in factory farms is genetically modified soya grown on deforested Rainforest and Cerrado in South America. The soya is doused with toxic pesticides that poison local people, water and wildlife. Grains fed to pigs replace land that could grow food for people.

Factory farming of any species is wrong. Our focus on pigs is designed to bring light onto an issue about which there is insufficient public awareness. We use our specific expertise developed from years of film-making, research and campaigning to produce films which promote and support the growing movement against factory farms and toward small-scale ethical pig farms. 

What will the money be used for? The money will fund production costs, as well as paid-promotion of the films on social media to reach over our 7 million viewer target.
