Rooting for Real Farms: Amelia Freer & Helen Browning

I’m incredibly proud to be supporting the Farms Not Factories campaign #TurnYourNoseUp

Farms Not Factories is a non-profit organisation working through film-making and campaigning to support the ‘food sovereignty’ movement by exposing the true costs of cheap meat from animal factories in order to inspire people to only buy meat from local, healthy, high welfare farms. Their long term vision is a world without animal factories and they work collaboratively with other groups who focus on other important areas of work – such as policy change, supporting producers and campaigning locally to provide content, support their work and spread a shared message through film.

Find out how you can get involved here:

Helen Browning took over her father’s 1,350 acre Wiltshire farm in 1986 and turned it organic. She went on to found Eastbrook Farm Organic Meats and the Helen Browning Organic brand, which provides pork products for major retailers. The business also includes event catering and her village pub, The Royal Oak. In 1998 she was appointed an OBE for her services to organic farming and is also Chief Executive of the Soil Association.

“I think if you care about animal welfare and about the overuse of antibiotics and the risk that it’s posing to human health; if you care about our countryside and you really want to eat the most flavoursome pork you can get, then I really do recommend that you eat organic”. Helen Browning
