Fair Oaks Farms opened its new Pig Adventure and wants the public to think they treat animals with kindness, but these facts tell a different story.

Fair Oaks pigs live miserable, depressing lives of anguish and torment, and are slaughtered in a brutal, bloody manner that would horrify children who are guests at its Pig Adventure.

It is quite disturbing that Fair Oaks sells tickets for families to get a glimpse of this misery. Rather than teaching children to respect these animals, Fair Oaks props them up as nothing but mere objects for our amusement.

The Pig Adventure is a marketing campaign to try to make people ignore the cruelty that is inherent in the process of animal agriculture. Don’t be fooled by their deception!
