Welcome to Here we explore all areas of the farm animal industry, with a particular focus on commercial operations. The content on this website is based on research by the independent Pew Commission on Industrial Farm Animal Production, also known as PCIFAP.

The research PCIFAP conducts focuses on a few key areas:

  • Effects the farm industry has on public health overall
  • Effects to the environment caused by commercial farming
  • Effects to the overall health of animals

The primary research project lasted over 2 years and the final report published on 4/29/2008. Several major recommendations were made in the report which have been, or are in the process of being, implemented into the farming industry.

We’ll also be publishing lots of lighter content going forward related to growing your own food, raising animals for meet and sufficiency in general. Here are some of our latest articles on those topics:
